Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Multi-variable calculus, basic Solid Mechanics including multi-axial stress states

Intended learning outcomes

The course is to give the student a basic knowledge about the relations needed in order to analyze thin walled structures (plates and shells) with respect to stresses and deformations, and the ability to independently apply this knowledge to concrete problems. At the end of the course, the student shall be able to

  • give an account of basic aspects of the classical plate and shell theory
  • solve problems regarding the stress- and deformation states in loaded thin-walled structures
  • identify unrealistic results
The course is also a preparation for further studies in Solid Mechanics.

Course content

Basic relations of Solid Mechanics, classical theory for in plane loaded plates including the Airy stress function, the Kirchhoff plate theory with applications to strip plates, symmetrically loaded circular plates and simply supported rectangular plates, buckling analysis of simply supported rectangular plates, membrane theory for shells of revolution, bending theory for symmetrically loaded cylindrical shells with applications to tanks and pressure vessels

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
