AE1202 SOLID MECHANICS 3 1 0 100


OBJECTIVE
To give brief descriptions on the behaviour of materials due to axial, bending and torsional and combined loads.


1. BASICS AND AXIAL LOADING 10+3
Stress and Strain – Hooke’s Law – Elastic constants and their relationship– Statically determinate
cases - bar with uniform and varying section statically indeterminate cases –composite bar. Thermal Stresses – stresses due to freely falling weight.

2. STRESSES IN BEAMS 10+3
Shear force and bending moment diagrams for simply supported and cantilever beams – Bending stresses in straight beams – Shear Stresses in bending of beams with various cross sections – beams of uniform strength

3. DEFLECTION OF BEAMS 10+3
Double integration method – McCauley’s method - Area moment method – Conjugate beam method.

4. TORSION 5+3
Torsion of circular shafts - shear stresses and twist in solid and hollow circular shafts – closely coiled helical springs.

5. BI AXIAL STRESSES 10+3
Stresses in thin circular cylinder and spherical shell under internal pressure – volumetric Strain. Combined loading – Principal Stresses and maximum Shear Stresses - Analytical and Graphical methods.

TOTAL : 60
