Strength of Materials IV - SOM401M

Baccalareus Technologiae Degree Year module NQF level: 7 Credits: 15
Module presented in English Module presented online
Pre-requisite: SOM3602 & SOMPRB3
Purpose: To further students' analytical skills in dealing with design problems. By the end of this module the students is able to calculate the deflection of a beam of any given section given the conditions of span and load which meet a specific strength criterion; provide the basis for a number of advanced techniques in the analysis of both statically determinate and indeterminate structures by using energy methods; extend stress analysis in beams for design purposes; and examine the effect of compressive forces in relation to the geometry and boundary conditions of columns.
