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



Fundamental principles of design and assessment of structural elements. Stress and strain analysis after 1st order theory. Introduction of applications according to 2nd order theory. Elastic-plastic behaviour of materials.

Compulsory literature:

R.C. Hibbeler: Statics and mechanics of materials, Macmillan Publishing Company, USA, 1992

Recommended literature:

Gere, Timoshenko: Mechanics of materials, PWS-Kent, Boston, 1990

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester


Other requirements

At least 70% attendance at the exercises. Absence, up to a maximum of 30%, must be excused and the apology must be accepted by the teacher (the teacher decides to recognize the reason for the excuse). Tasks assigned on the exercises must be hand in within the dates set by the teacher.
