This module applies the theories of statics to the analysis of the mechanical behaviour of basic deformable structures subjected to external loads.
The module is a natural continuation from the modules MECH0003 Introduction to Mechanical Engineering and MECH0006 Engineering Dynamics, which are studied in the first year of the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate programme. It aims to provide students with an engaging theoretical foundation enabling them to determine the response of engineering structures to external mechanical actions, the resulting deformations and the state of stress and strain produced into the structure’s components. Students will also acquire the ability to predict and prevent common forms of structural static failure in basic engineering components.
Topics covered in the module include:
Upon completion of this module students will be able to:
