The aim of the course:
To provide a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental concepts of strength of materials.
Learning OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
LO - 1 : understand the laws of strength of materials.1,21
LO - 2 : calculate maximum and minimum normal and shear stresses and the orientations at which they occur for an arbitrary two-dimensional stress / strain state.1,21
LO - 3 : calculate stress, strain, and deformation for basic geometries subjected to axial, torsional, bending, and transverse loading.1,21
LO - 4 : identify a statically indeterminate problem and solve such a problem for axial loading.1,21
LO - 5 : draw axial, torsional, bending, and shear loading diagrams.1,21
CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), LO : Learning Outcome
