In this unit, you will develop skills to analyse the stresses in a structural member subjected to various actions such as axial force, torsion, bending moments, and shear force using the principles of mechanics of materials. You will learn how individual structural members resist and transfer the stresses as well as ways in which they can fail. You will document the process of modeling, testing, and analysis and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams in a professional manner. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Offerings For Term 3 - 2024
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –

International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:
