Solid Mechanics II for Bachelor students in engineering science
7.5 ECTS credits
The course deals with complex issues related to bending and torsion of beams and axes. The course also treats basic solid mechanical problems and issues of fracture mechanics and buckling stress. Students calculate the natural frequency and the vibration amplitude of dynamically loaded structures such as beams, bars, and axes. The minimum potential energy principle is treated both theoretically and as a basis for approximative analysis of beams and plates.
