Strength of Materials
3

*SWS*4*ECTS*
In the course Strength of Materials 1, the distribution of forces inside of bodies is investigated. In order to describe those distributed forces, an additional mathematical expression has to be introduced: the tensor (stress tensor). Bodies are no longer seen as rigid but can be deformed. Material laws connect the stresses with the deformations. Nominal stresses are determined in bodies which are idealised by using an exact mechanical model. These nominal stresses are then compared with allowable stresses derived from a chosen material. In that sense, also the deformations arising under actual loads are calculated in order to decide if they can be justified for a correct design. Contents: stresses, strains, material laws, tension / compression of rods, bending of beams, lateral force bending, torsion, energy methods (also as a basis for numerical methods), failure criteria.
