Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learning outcomes of the course unit the aim of the course is to acquaint students with basic knowledge of thermal stress of mechanical components. Ensure understanding of the subject matter. Apply the experience gained in practice.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The course extends the basic knowledge of the introductory course of elasticity and strength. It acquaints with calculations of stress-strain states and methods of dimensioning of basic shapes of machine parts stressed by temperature effects. At the same time, the issue of heat transfer is discussed. Furthermore, students will learn numerical methods of mechanics (finite element method, mesh method and boundary element method) both in the field of stationary and non-stationary problems.
