Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge about stress-strain relationships of different kind of materials (e.g. metals, textile, biological tissues)
  • Have knowledge about the tensorial nature and interdependence of stresses and strains
  • Have knowledge about the general line of reasoning from the macroscopic state (geometry, materials, loads) through the deformation state to the local state (stresses and strains at a point, failure prediction)
  • Have knowledge about the fact that different failure models exists depending on the choice of material and stress multi-axiality
  • Have knowledge about the distinction between static loading, time-varying (repeated) loading, and impact loading

Skills

  • Can apply the methodology to simple cases (e.g. beams and rods) in order to evaluate deformations and risk of failure
  • Can assess primary criteria for choices of structural layout and material (e.g. maximum load, permissible deformation, energy absorption)
  • Can assess the number of loading cycles to failure for comparison with endurance curves

Competences

  • Are able to evaluate combined structures through discretization into elementary structural types (beams, rods, columns etc.)
  • Can conduct a qualified dialogue with engineers on the material of sports products
