NEC2102 - Solid Mechanics
|1.||Evaluate structural deflections and rotations for a range of structures (modelled as connected linear elements), which behave in a linear and elastic manner;|
|2.||Evaluate internal axial forces, shearing forces and bending moments for a range of determinate and indeterminate structures (modelled as connected linear elements), which behave in a linear and elastic manner;|
|3.||Create and analyse structure models using a commercial computer program, where structures are modelled as connected linear elements which behave in a linear and elastic manner;|
|4.||Critically evaluate a range of approximate solutions for common structures; and|
|5.||Determine solutions and undertake standard structural engineering analyses.|
