Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The aim of the study course is to provide studying ability to calculate and analyse beams, and squared beams, taking technical constructions attention the set requirements and criteria. The task is to estimate stress and stability set for a beam.
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Students are able to analyze the stability of structures. - Study project and exam on the beam’s construction stability.
Students are able to analyze and count on plate and shell at the symmetric load. - Test and examination task: plate and shell.
Students are able to analyze beam construction and the variation of impact, for the criteria. - Study project and exam tasks on oscillation and impact.
Students are able to construction, using the FEM method and computer program. - Test: the beam bending calculation of buckling and the FEM program.
Course prerequisites Mathematics, physics, theoretical mechanics.
