Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give the students knowledge within structural mechanics and strength of materials as a basis for abilities within structural design. For areas included in the course, the students should be able to:

  1. Use proper terminology; Use proper denotations; Describe sectional entities and types of stress;
  2. Define used concepts, like normal and shearing force, bending and torsion moment, stress, strain, elongation, deflection; Describe various elements of structure and types of structures;
  3. Explain the function of structures; Calculate external and sectional entities as well as deflections for standard cases; Calculate external and sectional entities as well as deflections for combinations of standard cases; calculate stresses for typical loads and simple elements of structure; By exceeding determinations judge the correctness of calculations done; Carry through and report on a structural design assignment according to conventions; Use a computer program for the calculation of structural mechanics;
  4. A structure given, suggest a proper model of calculation considering loads as well as design; Calculate external and sectional entities as well as deflections for other than standard cases; By proper approximations or otherwise judge the reasonableness of calculations done ; Calculate stresses for combined loads and non standard structural elements; Optimize a structure for a given load;

Course content

Load analysis according to the European standrads "Eurocode". Two- and three-dimensional force systems. Trusses. Statically determinate structures. Stresses. Calculations of the tension, compression, bending, combined bending and normal force, shear, buckling, and torsion, using the elastic theory. Statically indeterminate structures. Plastic theory and second order theory. Structural dynamics

Teaching and working methods

The course contains lectures and hand-in assignments. The lectures consist of theoretical parts and the solution of typical problems. The assignments are designed as calculation tasks, two of which are carried out in combination with a computor laboration.
The course runs over the entire spring semester.

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.
