Axial, torsional, transverse and bending loads; compound states of stress, principal stresses and strains; basic theories of failure for ductile and brittle materials; buckling including local buckling effects; basic energy methods; impact theory.

To develop basic competency in the application of the methods of Mechanics of Materials to problems in Mechanical Engineering.  The course serves as a foundation for subsequent, required courses: ENME203 (Dynamics and Vibrations), ENME307 (Mechanical Behaviour of Materials) and ENME302 (Computer-aided Mechanical Engineering Analysis).

Learning Outcomes

  • After completion of the course students should feel they have the ability to perform an engineering mechanics analysis of the following conditions:

  • static loading conditions of standard mechanical engineering systems
  • axial loading conditions and resultant stresses in a system
  • transverse loading conditions and resultant stresses in a system
  • bending loads and resultant stresses in a system
  • torsional loads and resultant stresses in a system
  • combined loading within a system
  • basic failure criteria for a mechanical system
  • buckling conditions within a mechanical system
  • strain energy within a mechanically loaded system
  • impact loading within a mechanically loaded system
    • University Graduate Attributes

      This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:

      Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award

      Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
