Module Description: This module will enable the learner to understand and solve problems of bending stresses, shear stress, composite sections, and combined bending and direct stress.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Determine stresses due to bending in beam cross-sections and carry out simple beam design
LO2 Evaluate shear stresses in rectangular and non-rectangular cross-sections
LO3 Determine the state of stress in a structure subject to combined bending and direct stress
LO4 Calculate stresses due to bending moment in composite sections and carry out simple design of composite beams including reinforced concrete
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).
