Competency aims

-To give students the understanding and skills to design and analyze engineering components and structures.

Learning outcomes

-To calculate engineering stresses due to normal loads, shear loads, bending and torsion acting on engineering components. -Define the size and material for given engineering components under the application of loads. -To use FEA COMSOL software in the design of members.

Course contents

Introduction Stress Strain Mechanical Properties of Materials Axial Load COMSOL FEA software Torsion Bending

Prerequisites and co-requisites

Mathematics minimum 10 ECTS completed. Mechanics [PT-1-014] It is not recommended for any student to attempt this course without first studying Mechanics. Students who have passed Strength of Materials in a previous year can not take this course. The course content is the same. There has been a change of course name only.

Previous course names

Strength of Materials.

Additional information

Although the attendance of weekly lectures is recommended, it is not compulsory. For most effective learning, it is recommended that students work on tutorials and example problems on a weekly basis. This will develop independent problem solving skills. COMSOL software from lab.arcada.fi All deadlines dates must be meet for assignments. There is no late submission of assignments.

Recommended or required reading

It is highly recommended to purchase the course textbook "Mechanics of Materials", Hibbeler, 10th Edition in SI units. The weekly lectures are directly based on the chapters from this book. The text is also used in the Mechanics of Materials 2 course. The text is available from the book shop in kauppakeskus Arabia by asking at their desk. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mechanics-Materials-Units-Russell-Hibbeler/dp/1292178205 Reference textbook: "COMSOL 5 for Engineeers", Mehrzad Tabatabaian, Arcada Libguides.

Assessment requirements

10% Individual Assignment 1 (compulsory) 10% COMSOL tutorial (optional) 80% Final Exam/ Re-Exam (closed book, Mechanic of Materials formula sheet provided as shown in itslearning. No MAOL book allowed in exam). The final exam will be based on chapters 1,4,5 and 6 from the course textbook. Students who do not complete Assignment 1 by the deadline will be removed from the course. A pass mark in the final exam/re-exam of at least 40/80 and a total mark of at least 50/100 in total is required to pass the course. Previous years assignments are not valid for students retaking course. GRADING. 50-59 Grade 1 Satisfactory 60-69 Grade 2 Satisfactory 70-79 Grade 3 Good 80-89 Grade 4 Good 90-100 Grade 5 Excellent Re-exam 1 gives all students an opportunity to improve their grade whether they sat the normal final exam or not. Non attendance of a re-exam is counted as one opportunity. Re-exam 2 is only for students who did not pass the first normal exam.
