Country: Netherlands
Language: English
Course Description:
At the end of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Calculate stresses/strains in thin walled structures using: -Engineering beam theory (bending and shear) -Torsion theory (closed and open sections) 2. Modify above theories in the presence of cutouts and/or taper 3. Calculate displacements using: -Beam theory -Energy methods (Castigliano’s thms) 4. Determine buckling loads for simple structures (beams, trusses) 5. Design such structures: -Determine geometry so that structure does not fail (thickness of skins under bending, shear and torsion; cross-sectional geometry of beams under compression)
