AbstractBasic theories for structure integrity calculations are presented with focus on strength, stability, fatigue and elasto-plastic structural analysis.
Theories and models for one dimesional and planar structures are presented based on energy theorems.
ObjectiveBasic principles applied in structural mechanics. Introduction to the theories of planar structures. Development of an understanding of the relationship between material properties, structural theories and design criteria.
Content1. Basic problem of continuum mechanics and energy principles: structural theories, homogenization theories; finite elements; fracture mechanics.
2.Structural theories for planar structures and stability: plane-stress, plate theory, buckling of plates (non-linear plate theory).
3.Strength of material theories and material properties: ductile behaviour, plasticity, von Mises, Tresca, principal stress criterion; brittle behaviour; viscoplastic behaviour, creep resistance.
4. Structural design: fatigue and dynamic structural analysis.
