Title:Applied Mechanics 2
Long Title:Applied Mechanics 2
Module Code:CIVL6002
 
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Civil Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2014/15 ( September 2014 )
Module Delivered in 3 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: DES WALSH

Module Description: This module will provide the student with further topics in engineering mechanics. It covers beam bending theory, stress, strain and elasticity and hydrostatics.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Construct shear force and bending moment diagrams for statically determinate beams and frames.
LO2 Evaluate the geometrical properties of structural sections.
LO3 Solve problems of axial stress and strain using simple elastic theory.
LO4 Solve problems of hydrostatic forces on immersed plane surfaces
LO5 Conduct laboratory practicals and compile reports on results.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
