Learning goals / The objective of this course is to present advanced issues of
competences: mechanics and strength of materials. The concepts introduced will
be applied to numerous examples in structural mechanics
Content:

Several advanced issues of mechanics and strength of materials
are addressed in this course. More precisely, the following topics
will be covered:
 Basic concepts of continuum mechanics
 Elastic material
 The theory of simple beams I
 Torsion of prismatic bars
 Curved beams
 Simple beams II: Energy principles
 Two-dimensional problems
 Plates and shells
 Stability of equilibrium
 Some basic concepts of dynamics
 Oscillators with one degree of freedom
 Systems of several degrees of freedom.
