UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
Expands the first year Applied Mechanics unit to investigate the mechanics of solid materials. The mechanical properties of materials are addressed in addition to internal stresses and strains resulting from axial, bending, shear, torsion and combined loadings. Transformation of stress and strain theory is presented as well as failure theories. Deflection of flexural members and the buckling of compression members are also addressed.
Topic 1: General Concepts of Stress and Strain in Solid Materials
Topic 2: Calculation of Stresses and Strains Resulting from Axial, Bending, Shear, Torsion and Combined Loadings
Topic 3: Stress-Strain Transformations and Failure Theories
Topic 4: Deflection of Flexural Members
Topic 5: Buckling of Compression Members
Topic 6: Buckling of Compression Member
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:||GA1||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of methods of calculating internal stresses and strains in solid materials|
|2||transform stresses and strains using first principles and Mohr's Circle theory, and apply theories of failure|
|3||apply appropriate methods to determine deflections in flexural members|
|4||demonstrate an understanding of buckling in compression members|
|5||apply established analytical engineering techniques to solve engineering problems.|
