Objectives

i. Knowledge and understanding
The student will gain a basic understanding of the mechanical behaviour within the elastic range of planar structures subjected to point and distributed loads.

ii. Applying knowledge and understanding.
The student will acquire knowledge that will enable him to evaluate and analyze the structural behaviour and the stress/strain state of plane structures operating within the linear elastic range.

iii. Making judgements.
The student will gain the ability to identify and propose appropriate procedures for calculation of stresses and strains in both statically determinate and statically indeterminate plane structures operating in the linear elastic range.

iv. Communication skills.
The student will gain the ability to describe and illustrate to specialists and non-specialists the main performance requirements, expressed in terms of stress, strain and displacements, of planar structural configurations.

v. Learning skills.
The student will gain the ability to deal with typical issues related to the behaviour of planar structures operating in the elastic range.

Prerequisites

Teaching Methods

The course consists of a series of lectures which will be followed by tutorials and exercises in which the notions and concepts introduced during the lectures are applied. Specific tutorials will be also dedicated to preparation for the written tests.
A booklet with solutions for questions of previous written examinations are available on the course website.

Verification of learning

The following topics are required for a positive evaluation of the written or oral tests:
- calculation of internal forces in statically determined structures;
- calculation of displacements in statically determined structures;
- calculation of support reactions in statically indetermined structures;
- calculation of stresses induced by internal forces (tension/compression, flexure, shear) in mono-dimensional beams with simple symmetry cross-section.
