Curricular information is subject to change
On successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Construct free body diagrams of engineering structures or individual components and clearly illustrate the state of loading to which they are subjected.
2. Apply the principles of static equilibrium and distinguish between problems which are easily solved (statically determinate) and those which require a more advanced solution strategy (statically indeterminate).
3. Calculate the internal stresses and the associated deflections in structural elements subjected to axial, torsional and bending loads.
4. Describe the assumptions and limitations of the analytical methods used in the course.
5. Analyse and interpret experimental data and compare the results with appropriately identified analytical solutions.
