Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This course is about the behaviour of structures under loads. Those enrolling in this paper are expected to have successfully completed Engineering Mechanics and are therefore able to calculate forces and moments in bars, beams and pin-jointed frames, and have an understanding of the meaning of direct stress in materials.

Topics covered include: normal and or shear stresses in structural elements such as bars and beams; normal, shear and bearing stresses in connections and supports, displacements (translations and rotations); critical loads of columns; transformation of stresses, Mohr's circle for plane stress, and the use of failure criteria for design.

In addition to the use of equilibrium equations and freebody diagrams, the concepts of geometric compatibility, boundary conditions at supports and continuity conditions at connections will be covered.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

Internally assessed components in addition to the final exam, including tests, labs/assignments. Purely numerical errors will not generally be penalised but unreasonably high/low values without any comments may be subject to some penalty. Lack of clarity in the answers, including absence of freebody diagrams may lead to a reduction in marks.

The assignments may be given in the case where the labs are not able to be run in any circumstance.

The assignments (if applicable) will be uploaded onto Moodle prior to the dates given on the lecture schedule. Lab sheets will be handed out at the labs.

The Final Examination may be a closed book examination, and the topics covered will reflect the content of the whole course.

Assessment Components

Edit Assessments Content

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 60:40. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 40% of the overall mark.

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 60:40 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 40% or 0% of the overall mark.
