Modul: engineering mechanics 1

Modul no. :n/a
ECTS credits:7.5
Expenditure of time:81h contact time + 144h self study
Modul type:compulsory module
Duration:1 semester
Supervisor:Prof. Dr.-Ing. J. Legler
Objectives:The course gives an introduction into basics and methods of statics and mechanics of materials. Students get qualified with skills and methods they need to solve mechanic problems concerning statics (outer forces) and mechanics of materials (inner forces) autonomously as well as to transfer their knowledge into practical application.
The course is necessary for the understanding of advanced courses, e.g. “Mechanik 2”, „Werkstoffe-Konstruktion-Fertigung 2“ and „Werkstoffe-Konstruktion-Fertigung 3“.

Valid is the German text.
Contents:The course contents are adjusted to the needs and demands students of this subject have in their future work life. That is:
Basics and methods to solve problems concerning statics and mechanics of materials: formation of equilibrium equations for rigid bodies in 2D and 3D; concurrent and general forces; moment of force and moment of a couple; calculation of support reactions; definition of statically determinated and indeterminated systems; calculation of truss; static and kinetic friction in mechanic systems considering the particular coefficients; calculation of the center of gravity in 2D and 3D; normal forces, shear forces and bending moments at beams and frames; definition of the general state of stress in bodies; definition of the general stress-strain relation; hypothesis of strength of materials; calculation of bending problems: tension, neutral plane, second moments of area, parallel-axes theorem, deflection curve; shear force, shear stress; calculation of torsion problems; Eulers buckling loads
