SYLLABUS/CONTENT

1st part – Fundamentals of machine design

Recalls of statics and kinematics of rigid bodies. Tension and strain in solids. Equilibrium of deformable bodies. Loads diagrams. Area of cross sections. Theory of the beams (subjected to tensile, compression, shear, bending, torsion). Effects superposition. Equation of the elastic line. Conventional structural materials (mechanical properties).

2nd part – Criteria of structural design

Static strength of materials. Ideal or equivalent stress. Strength criteria for ductile materials. Strength criteria for brittle materials. Safety condition: Limit stress, Safety factor, Admissible stress.

Notches and their effect. Elastic and experimental stress concentration factor. Safety condition in presence of notches.

Fatigue in metallic materials. Fatigue spectra.

High cycle fatigue: Wöhler curves; Influence of the mean stress; Notches and their influence; Size factor; Surface factor. Safety condition for stresses of constant amplitude. Safety condition for stresses of variable amplitude: Cumulative damage.

Long columns with central loading. Euler column formula.
