151-0360-00L Procedures for the Analysis of Structures
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2016|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Abstract||Basic 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.
|Objective||Basic 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.|
|Content||1. 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.
