Paper Description
This paper provides an opportunity for students to gain advanced level knowledge on mechanics and performance of materials. The paper covers stress and strain transformations, failure criteria, unsymmetrical bending, torsion of noncircular sections, fatigue, materials selection and materials testing. Four assignments are used to give students an opportunity to practice numerical problems. By the end of the course students will have the essential knowledge and skills needed in designing components and structures in most engineering situations.
Paper Structure
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
This paper facilitates development of technical writing and/or oral presentations, an important competency expectation of engineers and scientists. To pass this paper, students are expected to demonstrate their ability to produce written work of an adequate standard.
The final exam is closed book, with the candidates being required to answer five out of a total of eight questions. The topics covered will reflect the whole course.
A minimum mark of 40% in the examination is required in order to receive a paper passing grade.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
