Course contents

Hyperstatic beam- and framed structure. Obstructed torsion. Buckling . Lateral buckling. Bending of a curved beam. Plate and slab structures. Contact stresses. Impact loads.

Prerequisites and co-requisites

The students have the basic knowledge of the strength of materials and they are able to static sizing of structures with the help of manuals and sizing table cases. The students can form a mechanic model from a structure under inspection and they can solve the stresses, tensions and deformations affecting it. The students can perceive the cases which require more precise and profound strength inspection.
