Course Description

This course covers the principles of deflection of beams, elastic stability of struts, thick cylinders, rotating discs and shafts, bending of circular plates, elastic stability of simple frames and mechanical springs.

Course objective

  • To study the behaviour of solid bodies under load. The way in which they react to applied forces, the deflections resulting and the stresses and strains set up within the bodies are all considered in an attempt to provide sufficient knowledge to enable a student to design any component such that it will not fail within its service life.
