Department: MSc Structural Engineering
Module Description: This module will enable students to gain knowledge on engineering mechanics and provide scientific information and introduction to theory of elasticity, plane-stress and plane-strain problems. The following topics will be considered: torsion, nonsymmetrical bending, shear center, curved beams, beams on elastic foundations, lateral-torsional buckling, column stability, and stress concentration. Throughout the study key kinematic and material response assumptions are emphasized in order to highlight the applicability and limitations of the analysis methods.
