Detailed information
Original study plan Bachelor's programme Mechanical Engineering 2020W
Objectives In this course analytical and experimental methods of strength assessment of mechanically loaded structural parts and materials are applied. Objective is the analysis, if parts of machines, devices or plants can resist the applied static and dynamic loads, i.e. do not fail due to fractures and that no damages due to deformation occur.
Subject Selected examples on material behavior and constitutive laws, deformation analysis and stress analysis, fatigue strength analysis, fracture mechanics, and stability analysis are elaborated.
Criteria for evaluation Attendance and participation; homework; written test
Methods Detailed presentation on the blackboard and own elaboration of calculation examples
