FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering AMME2301: MECHANICS OF SOLIDS Semester 2, 2011 | 6 Credit Points | Coordinator(s): Liyong Tong 1. INTRODUCTION Equilibrium of deformable structures; basic concept of deformation compatibility; stress and strain in bars, beams and their structures subjected to tension, compression, bending, torsion and combined loading; statically determinate and indeterminate structures; energy methods for bar and beam structures; simple buckling; simple vibration; deformation of simple frames and cell box beams; simple two- dimensional stress and Morh`s circle; problem- based applications in aerospace, mechanical and biomedical engineering. 2. LEARNING OUTCOMES Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. See assessment summary table below for details of which outcomes are assessed where. Outcomes are listed according to the course goals that they support. Fundamentals of Science and Engineering 1. To understand the fundamental principles of elementary solid mechanics and basic methods for stress and deformation analysis of a simple solid structure or element. 2. To gain the ability to analyse problems in terms of strength and deformation in relation to the design, manufacturing and maintenance of simple solid structures. 3. Understanding of the applicability of simple stress analysis methods. 4. Understanding of when and why to do deformation analysis. 5. Ability to model structures composed of bars and beams. 6. Apply boundary conditions for simple structural problems. 7. Understanding of how and why to use energy methods for structural analysis. 8. Ability to perform fundamental buckling analysis. 9. Ability to perform fundamental vibration analysis. Professional Communication 10. The ability to work and communicate with others in the tutorial sessions. For further details of course goals related to these learning outcomes, see online unit outline at http:// cusp.eng.usyd.edu.au/ students/ view- unit- page/ alpha/ AMME2301 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
