Prerequisite Form of prerequisites
Mathematics in architecture 2 A prerequisite for taking the course is to submit and defend semestral assignments in Mathematics in architecture 2. A prerequisite for taking the exam is to get a positive grade in Mathematics in architecture 2
Learning objectives
Theoretical foundations and necessary practical knowledge of rigid and deformable body mechanics, as well as analysis of simple line girders.
Learning outcomes
Understanding the essential laws and methods of rigid and deformable body mechanics. Development of creativity and ability to independently formulate and solve engineering problems. Ability to recognize the mechanical behavior of solid deformable materials and structures.
Basic terms. Force analysis. Statics of a material point. Rigid plate statics. Line girders. Forces in the cross-section of line girders. Truss girders. Axial stress. Geometric characteristics of the cross-section. Beam exposed to bending. Shear stresses during bending. Deflection of bent beams. Clean shear. Mohr's circle of stresses. Pressed beam stability-Euler's theory.
Teaching Methods
Independent preparation and defense of annual assignments during the semester is mandatory. The deadline for defending annual assignments is the beginning of next semester. Students who do not pass the colloquia during the semester, take remedial colloquia in terms of regular exam period.
