- Learning Outcomes
- On successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1.Demonstrate an understanding of complex states of stress and the effects of dynamic loadings on a mechanical system.
2.Design jointing systems.
3.Demonstrate an understanding of beam failure modes and calculate deflections and shear stresses.
4.Calculate failure loads for concentrically loaded columns.
