Description

This module explains how statically determinate beams carries load and outlines the fundamentals of stress analysis for statically determinate structural elements.

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Determine how a statically determinate beam carries load (via shear force and bending moment diagrams)

2.

Determine the internal loadings in structural members

3.

Calculate section properties

4.

Analyse structural cross-sections to determine the stresses resulting from axial load, bending, shear force and torsional loadings. 

5.

Perform laboratory practicals and report findings.

Indicative Syllabus

1.      Beam reactions, shear force and bending moment diagrams.

2.      Stress, Strain & Mechanical Properties.

3.      Axial Load (Deformation of elements subject to axial load).

4.      Bending (Bending deformation of a straight member. Second moment of area, flexure formula).

5.      Shear (Shear stresses in beams. Shear stress formula)

 6.     Torsion (Torsion formula. Polar moment of inertia. Angle of twist)

INDICATIVE PRACTICALS

Problem solving sessions.

Experimental Work:

  • Shear Force (Shear Force variation with increasing point load. Shear force variation for various loading conditions)
  • Bending moment (Bending moment variation at the point of loading. Bending moment variation away from the point of loading)
  • Torsion (Torsional deflection of a solid rod. The effect of rod length on the torsional deflection. Comparison of solid rod and tube)
