AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is aimed to deliver an introduction at the methods and problems of Mechanics of Solids and Structures, focused on the study of the mechanical behavior of materials. The course delivers the instruments to study the behavior of elastic solids and beams. The student must show his comprehension of the basic concepts introduced in the course, and, by solving specific examples of mechanics engineering, he has to show his knowledge on the topics of the course.

Teaching methods

The course is organized in a series of lectures and practical examples, directly addressed on the board.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Introduction. Static equilibrium force and moment. Beams, trusses and frames: loads, connections, supports, internal forces and moments. Determinate structures. Diagrams. Principle of virtual work.

Equilibrium and deformation of a deformable body. Stress and strain transformation, principal directions, Mohr’s circle. Properties of materials: stress-strain equations. Elastic problem formulation. Saint Venant’s  problem. Stress and deformation in beam and shaft: axial load, bending, transverse shear, torsion.

Deflection of beams due to bending: deformation, slope, method of superposition, statically indeterminate beams.
