Term / Semester: One-year

Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide basic knowledge on static and kinematics of rigid and deformable bodies and to analyze the structural response and the stability of structures composed of beams.

Course Structure

The course includes lectures and exercises in the classroom by the teacher. Student support activities are also provided through reception and additional exercises carried out by a tutor. During the period of the course there will be 5 in-course examinations, the passing of which will directly access the final oral exam.

Detailed Course Content

Static of beams- Stress and strain analysis of solids- The principle of virtual work- Fundamental laws in the theory of elasticy- Elastic equilibrium of beam systems- The Saint Venant problem: Axial load, Bending, Shear, Torsion- Failure criteria for fragile and ductile materials- Stability of elastic equilibrium and buckling loads.
