|Subject Overview:|| |
Unit 1, Mechanics of Solids: Upon completion, students should be able to formulate physical and mathematical models of mechanical systems for stress analysis, obtain solutions using analytical and/or numerical methods and have an increased understanding of the stress analysis of complex structures.
Topics covered include mathematical theory of elasticity in three dimensions; reduction to two dimensions; plane stress and plane strain; Airy's stress function and its application to practical problems; finite difference and finite element methods; and torsion.
Unit 2, Dynamics: Upon completion, students should be able to formulate physical and mathematical models of mechanical systems for vibration analysis, obtain solutions using analytical and/or numerical methods and have an increased understanding of vibration analysis of complex structures.
Topics include vibration of discrete and continuous systems; modal analysis; vibration isolation; torsional and bending vibrations; vibration absorbers; and system identification.
|Assessment:||Two 2-hour examinations (40% each) and a assignment not exceeding 20 pages including computations, diagrams, tables and computer output (20%).|
