The aim of the course is to develop the student's abilities in the design and analysis of engineering components. In particular stress, transverse shear, stress transformations and deflection will be covered. This includes a deeper understanding of the field of Mechanics of Materials.


At the end of the course the student will be able to: Design beam and shafts under combined loading conditions Perform stress transformation calculations Apply theories of failure to the loading of different materials Calculate the deflection of beams Analyze the buckling of columns


Transverse Shear Combined Loading Stress Transformations Strain Transformations Design of beams and shafts Deflection of beams and shafts


A prerequisite of "Mechanics of Materials 1 (Strength of Materials)" is required. The student should obtain the course textbook before starting the course. It is assumed the student is familiar with chapters 1-6 of the course book before starting this course. This course will cover chapters 7-12. The course textbook can be used in the exam.
