Solid Mechanics II for master students in engineering science7.5 ECTS credits
The course deals with basic multiaxial stress states for linear elasticity. Rotation symmetry field problems are treated for elastic cylinders and plates exposed to internal and external pressure, including rotating plates. The concept shear centre is covered, also for thin-walled non-symmetric beam cross-sections. The course introduces linear fracture mechanics and vibration analysis. Energy methods are introduced through Castigliano's theorem and the principle of minimum potential energy.
