Mechanics of Materials II: Thin Walled Pressure Vessels and Torsion
This course explores the analysis and design of thin-walled pressure vessels and engineering structures subjected to torsion. The course will look at real-world applications for thin-walled pressure vessels, such as gas storage tanks, simple spray cans, and techniques that could even be used to analyze blimps. In the torsion part of the course, participants will study techniques used for analyzing and designing torsion bar suspensions like the ones used in cars or track vehicles. Torsion is even applicable in the study of spiral bone fractures. Participants will need to have successfully completed the Mechanics of Materials I: Fundamentals of Stress and Strain and Axial Loading course in order to be successful in this course.
How You Will Benefit
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to understand:
Elastic torsion of straight cylindrical shafts; fundamentals of torsion for engineering structural members
Inelastic torsion and statically indeterminate torsion members; stresses on inclined planes for pure shear due to torsion; inelastic torsion of straight cylindrical shafts; statically indeterminate torsion problems
You will need to have successfully completed my earlier course, Mechanics of Materials I: Fundamentals of Stress and Strain and Axial Loading (DL 0014M), in order to be successful in this course.
