Department: BSc in Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: Make students aware of the key role of structures in different branches of engineering. Illustrate the way in which engineers use the principles of structural mechanics to understand the behaviour of structures and so to design structures in order to meet specified requirements. Examine in detail simple structural forms, including beams and cables; to understand how such structures carry applied loads, and how they deform under load, and how slender members may buckle.
