Description

Mechanics of Materials (ECMM107)

 

Detailed Description

Module Code: ECMM107

Module Lecturer(s): Prof Christopher Smith

n this module you will learn about the fundamental theories governing elasticity and fracture in solids, and the methods engineers use to measure these properties in real world problems. An example might be where components have bolt holes, which can magnify stress locally to levels well above global stresses.

This module will give you the knowledge and skills to calculate what these stresses are, measure them on site, and design components, using computational modelling, to avoid such issues in the first place. This will help prepare you for similar complex problems in professional practice, often involving computational modelling.

Bookings are limited to one person per module. If you require multiple bookings please contact empsmsc@exeter.ac.uk.
