This unit provides an understanding of the concepts and methods of the mechanics of materials. Topics covered include stress and strain at a point, Mohr's circle, statically determinant systems, axial deformation of bars, statically indeterminate systems, generalised Hooke's Law, pressure vessels, torsion, beam statics, beam bending, shear stresses in beams, stresses and strain transformations, yield and fracture criteria, elastic stress analysis, beam deflections, columns and buckling, elastic analysis of systems, stresses at a point in 3D.
