Course Details

Country: Australia
Course Title: Mechanics of Materials
Course Number: 300040
Course Description: Mechanics of Materials is the study of the stresses and deformation of a body made of any elastic solid material, and how these are related to the body's shape and the load applied to it. This unit looks at how and why structural components including bars and beams deform and break. It concentrates on how these are affected by the geometry of the body and loading. Types of loadings considered include normal loads, torsional loads and bending loads. The main objective of the unit is to introduce students to the aspects of stress, strain and internal force development in the components and the methods to determine the deformation and deflections of the components. Energy methods and impact loadings are also considered.
