6 ECTS; 2º Ano, 1º Semestre, 30,0 T + 30,0 PL


Not applicable

Strength of Materials II is a follow-up to Strength of Materials I and aims to provide the students with basic skills that will allow them to calculate bending stress and deformation and analyse structural elements under elastic instability. It is also made the study of connections.

0 - Some theorical information about bending theory. Exercises on pure bending;
1 - Tangential stresses under simple bending: thin-wall beams, open-section beams and cellular beams; 2 -Deformation of a bar under torsion; 3 - State of stress and deformation; 4 - Analysis of structural elements under combined stress; 5 - Elastic instability in linear and bent elements; 6 - Calculation of deformations

Evaluation Methodology
One final written exam (80%); compulsory pratical exercises proposed (20%).
