Module Code:MECH6031
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2016/17 ( September 2016 )

Module Description: This module offers students an insight into Mechanics of Materials for static scenarios. It covers 2D Stress in direct, shear, bending and torsional situations.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Recognise and resolve different 2D stress situations.
LO2 Generate and sketch shear-force and bending-moment diagrams
LO3 Determine static bending and torsion induced loads in mechanical systems
LO4 Conduct lab experiments as part of a team in a safe and appropriate manner and produce individual professional reports detailing the results, analysis and conclusions which arise.
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).
Mechanics 1
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
