Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • Multidimensional stress and deformation analysis
  • Equivalent stress
  • Hooke’s generalized law
  • Statically indeterminate systems and truss
  • Thin-walled pressure vessels
  • Statically indeterminate beams
  • Superposition of beam bending formulas
  • Formulation of boundary values
  • Stress and deformation conditions in symmetric axial structures (axles, tubes, pressure vessels)
  • Fatigue, introduction to fracture mechanics

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • calculate stress and deformation conditions in complex structures (simplified statically indeterminate constructions), outgoing from models for slim structures
  • choosing geometry and dimension from previously mentioned types of structures, with regards to criteria like deformation, plasticizing and tensile strength
  • define boundary conditions
  • decide the used models applicability as well as executing plausibility assessment of made approximations and acquired results
  • solve problems with methods for fatigue and fracture mechanics

Examination and completion

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

Grading scale

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


  • TEN1 - Written examination, 5,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • ÖVN1 - Exercises, 2,5 hp, betygsskala: P, 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.

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.
