Selected Topics in Strength of Materials
FSI-0PPAcad. year: 2019/2020
The course is to complete and expand the knowledge of the course Stength Analysis I (4PP). The course is the suplement to the lecture, seminars and home work.
It contains: Calculation of teh resulting internal effects in a rod. Calculation of quadratic moments of the cross section. Rod under simple stress - tension / compression, torsion, and bending. Rods under combined stresses. Supporting stability of rods.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course allows you to develop the knowledge of the course Stength Analysis I (4PP).
Basic knowledge of statics and mathematics.
Statics - conditions of static equilibrium and equivalence, the release of the body, the assessment of static certainty, resulting internal effects.
Mathematics - vectors and matrices, differentials and integrals, solutions to differential equations.
