Expected learning outcomes
The course builds on the course Mechanics and goes deeper into statics and strength of materials. Elasticity theory
is treated more thoroughly, and plasticity is introduced.
After completion of the course the student should be able to:
Knowledge:
 Explain the principles of equilibrium and elasticity
 Describe basic concepts such as EulerBernoulli beam theory and Navier hypothesis
 Know different methods for calculation of statically determinate and indeterminate structures
 Explain Tresca and von Mises yield criterion
Skills:
 Calculation of forces, bending moments and stresses
 Make general moment equations
 Solve puzzles about space frames and 3D beam systems
 Use Mohr diagram to determine the principal stresses
 Utilize the theory of elasticity theory and the theory of plasticity
General competence:
 Know about solving statics with matrices and the use of the Finite Element Method and calculation programs
