This course is about the performance of deformable solids in various materials under the action of different kinds of loads. Thus the main objective of the course will be to show how to determine the stress, strain, and deflection suffered by bi-dimensional (and simple tri-dimensional) structural elements when subjected to different loads (e.g. normal, shear, torsion, bending and combined loads). Once the state of stresses and strains has been established for a particular structure type, the student will be able to evaluate the allowable loads and associated allowable stresses before mechanical failure.
