The course will give knowledge on basic concepts and principles in solid mechanics, knowledge about the mechanical behaviour of our most common design materials, skills in methods to solve important engineering problems in solid mechanics.
Intended learning outcomes *
When teaching engineering it is important to understand and be able to explain the workin conditions of a product. For all products there are requirements on appropriate deformation and that it must not fail during usage. In this course the student will learn the basics of mechanical behaviour of materials and structures and how this knowledge can be used for the design of basic products and components with respect to stiffness and strength. With kowledge in solid mechanics the student can explain how to answer questions like "Will it hold?" and "Are the deformations to large?".
After finalising the course the student will be able to
understand basic concepts in solid mechanics such as deformation, bending, torsion, stress, tension/compression, strain
explain basic concepts in solid mechanics in a simple way
identify examples in every day reality
solve simple relevant problems
