Strength of Materials
Study: Bachelor in Security Engineering (272)


Department assigned to the subject: Department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
We strongly advise you not to take this course if you have not passed Physics, Algebra, Calculo and Applied Mechanics
The powers intended that students acquire are: - Understand basic concepts related to the principles of Solid Mechanics and its application to the analysis of deformable solids. Being able to raise the general equations of Elasticity with appropriate boundary conditions and determine the extent of the hypotheses considered. This requires achieving learning outcomes are summarized below: - Calculate stress and strain tensor associated with elastic and elastic-plastic problem problem. - Solve the methodology correct basic problems of Strength of Materials, obtaining the variables of interest the real problem. - Skills on Solid Mechanics - Applications on Elasticity - Skills on Strength of Materials.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
Force systems and equilibrium. Reaction forces. Force Diagrams and Laws. Introduction to Solid Mechanics theory. Stress and Strain. Constitutive equations. Elastic problem 2D simplification Plasticity criteria. Introduction to Strength of Materials. General study of structural behaviour of cross section strength. Forces and movements in beams.
Learning activities and methodology
The 50% of the formative activities are oriented to the acquisition of theoretical knowledge. The remaining activities (50%) are oriented to the acquisition of practical capabilities in relation to the subject program. - Master lectures, sessions of problems resolution, student presentations, individual sessions, and personal student work for theoretical knowledge (3 ECTS). - Practical sessions of laboratory and sessions of problems, individual sessions, and personal student work for practical knowledge (3 ECTS).
