Basics of Strength of MaterialsLaajuus (4 cr)

Code: RKM2C2

Objective

Competence in structural engineering
Students know how to determine stresses of simple bar structures and to apply tables to define the maximum bending of beams in simple situations. Students are familiar with typical stability phenomena, e.g. various types of buckling.

Competence in Construction Production
Students know how to assess the behavior of site structures with special attention given to the strength of the materials and to employee safety.

Content

- Normal stress
- Strain
- Coefficients of materials
- Hooke's law
