Credit points: 15

Subject outline

A fundamental requirement in the design of many engineering structures is to be able to assess the force interaction between structural elements using the principles of mechanics, and to determine the ability of a structural element to safely resist forces applied to it. This Subject presents the fundamentals of engineering statics and strength of materials.
