Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students manage the design and assessment of the structural elements with respect to basic types of stresses. Determination of the reactions and internal forces on the simple statically indetermined structures is managed.

Teaching methods



Subject Elasticity and Plasticity provides students with basic information on strain and strain of generally loaded supporting elements and simple rod structures with respect to the basic strain and elastic or ideal elastic-plastic behavior of the material. The course provides basic information on the design and assessment of the reliability of load bearing structures. The training also includes the stability analysis of slender columns in compression. The course also provides information on the basic cross-sectional characteristics that are used in static calculations. Students will acquire basic knowledge of principles and methods of building mechanics, which are applied in normative regulations for design of structures.
