Content

This unit will include detailed analysis of various loading conditions in members including axial, multi-axial, pure bending, bending of composite beams, elasto-plastic bending, elastic and elastoplastic torsion, stress concentrations, transverse shear stresses in beams, shear flow and combined loadings and appropriate selection of materials to avoid failure through understanding of loading conditions and material properties. The unit will also address failure types including yielding, creep, fatigue, corrosion and structure-property relationships.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination and a mark of at least 50% in the practical report.
