This course will build on the fundamental theories defined previously in Mechanics & Materials. Two principal theories in the determination of stress within a structure are Energy Methods and three-dimensional analysis. Topics covered in this course will include engineering plasticity, design of pressure vessels and pipes, thick-walled cylinders, shrink fitting, duplex pressure vessels, inelastic deformation, residual stresses, membrane theory of shells of revolution, yielding, rotating shells, local bending stresses, stress analysis of rotating discs with and without holes, shrink fitting, initial and ultimate yielding, fracture mechanics and fatigue, and introduction to the finite element method
At the conclusion of this subject students should be able to -
• Determine analytically, the maximum stress in a loaded beam
• a 1 hour mid semester test (10% of total mark)
