In this unit students will extend their knowledge of basic stress analysis concepts introduced in second year units to more complex situations. Several new concepts/approaches will be introduced including energy methods, stress transformation and failure analysis. Students will learn how to apply these analytical approaches to real-life/industry-based problems, including examples where they are required to apply engineering judgement to simplify the analysis and understand the limitations of the analytical tools. By the end of this course students will be able to confidently design engineering structures using classical analytical techniques.


2 x written reports (30% each) 60%, examination 40%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve an overall mark of at least 50% and a minimum of 40% in the examination.
