Course Aim

Upon completion of the course the student should:


·     Make simple rough estimates of stress in the different load cases

·     Be able to choose a safety factor for loaded structures

·     Be able to calculate stresses and deformations applied to examples from Materials Science and Mining and Mineral Engineering


The course deals with tensile, compressive and shear stresses; torsion and bending; buckling; fatigue; notch effect and overall strength.


Lectures and assignments.


Written exam after the course. Results from three quizzes during the course  are credited towards results in the final exam.

The course corresponds to MP1038.
