Upon completion of the course students should have the ability to:

Kunskap och förståelse

  • explain central concepts and calculations in solid mechanics
  • show familiarity with the relation between tension and elongation
  • show familiarity with the use of elastic modulus, shear modulus, tensile strength and yield point
  • explain the properties and material composition of plastic and composite materials
  • show familiarity with different manufacturing methods and their respective possibilities and limitations.

Färdighet och förmåga

  • calculate different conditions of tension and deformation
  • decide correct dimension of structures based on information about strain and the linear mechanical properties of the material
  • calculate and use safety factors
  • discuss production methods based on information about demands on a product, volume of material and production in relation to sustainable development
  • perform calculations on non-complex constructions.

Värderingsförmåga och förhållningssätt

  • reflect on the environmental and personal health impact of materials
  • show ability to evaluate if a solution is within reason.
