Description

The student will learn how to analyse simple beams, perform simple calculations involving friction, stress and strain and determine centres of gravity.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Analyse simple beams carrying point loads and uniformly distributed loads and draw shear force and bending moment diagrams

2.

Compute relevant parameters relating to simple stress and strain

3.

Compute centres of gravity for regular and irregular figures using graphical and analytical methods

4.

Carry out simple computations relating to friction

Module Assessment Strategies

1. 1 hour written continuous assessment exam mid-semester

2. 2 hour written final exam

3. Submission of drawings and practical copy

Indicative Syllabus

1. Simple beams     Concentrated point loads. Uniformly distributed loads. Shear force and bending moment diagrams

2. Stress and strain   Hooke’s Law. Young’s Modulus of elasticity. Ultimate stress. Factors of safety. Tensile tests

3. Centre of gravity for regular and irregular plane figures, graphically and analytically. Link polygon.

4. Friction   Limiting friction. Sliding friction. Angle of friction. Inclined planes. Coefficient of friction

Indicative Practicals

1. Shear force and bending moment diagrams

2. Stress and strain. Young’s modulus of elasticity

3. Tensile test on steel

4. Graphical determination of centres of gravity
