This course will expand on the basic principals established previously in Solid Mechanics.
Methods of three-dimensional stress and strain analysis will be extended to allow the student to obtain solutions using analytical and/or numerical methods. These will include the analyses of principal stresses and strains, three dimensional Mohr’s circles, strain gauge experimentation and failure criteria. In addition, this unit will focus on plastic deformation of solids, including the analysis of residual stresses and the collapse load of structures. The responses of materials to fatigue and fracture, as well as their creep and viscoelastic behaviour, will also be explored. Finally, this unit will provide a number of examples of experimental applications of solid mechanics analysis based on modern research techniques.
At the completion of this subject students should be able to –
Three hour written exam at the end of semester (60%) and two assignments of equal weight totalling no more than 3000 words in weeks 4 and 8 (40% total).
