Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Preliminary knowledge in Mathemetics and Strength of materials is necessary. Main goals of this subject are to obtain skill in machine structures design and current statement evaluation. After this course students will be able to design machinbuilding structures and structural elements subjected to creep and fatique loading conditions.
Learning outcomes
and assessment
Stress and strain in elastic, plastic and visco-elastic bodies. - Verification work.
Oscillations in sistems having one and more degrees of freedom. Rezonance. Matherial behaviour under cickling loads. - Verification work.
Damage accumulation theory under creep and fatique loading conditions. - Verification work.
Fatique life and durability of structures and structural elements. - Verification work.
Course prerequisites Mathematics, Strength of materials.
