## Content and learning outcomes

### Course contents

• Quantity, units and dimensions
• Uniaxial stress and deformation analysis
• Material relations. Hooke’s law
• Stress – deformation
• Shear stress – deformation
• Section methods. Shear and moment diagrams

## Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

### Examination

• LAB1 - Laborations, 1,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
• TEN1 - Written examination, 5,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

### Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

No information inserted

### Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination

No information inserted

### Ethical approach

• All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
• In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
• In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
