A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.

ME3211 - Mechanics of Solids

The module covers topics on: Linear elasticity in which the general equations of equilibrium and compatibility are derived and its applications are illustrated for complex problems; Introduction to mechanics of composite materials; Failure of composites; Stresses in pressurized thick-walled cylinders in elastic and elasto-plastic regions; Stresses in rotating members;  and Experimental stress analysis with particular emphasis on optical methods. This is an elective module and is intended for students in Stage 3 and 4 who have an interest in the stress analysis of isotropic and composite materials. The materials in this module are applicable to chemical, civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineering.


ME4254 - Mechanics of Solids

Materials selection is the core of many engineering designs aimed at making a new product or redesigning an existing product with new functionalities. Clearly, the materials selection becomes a daunting task considering that there are over 100,000 engineering materials to choose from for a given application. Therefore, this module has been designed to help engineers in knowing some important factors and principles that govern any materials selection procedure for engineering designs. At the end of this course students will be able to:

appreciate the importance of materials in engineering design understand and explain the basics of engineering design in relation to materials analyze and carry out materials selection for a particular design evaluate different materials available to engineers for design understand materials properties and confidently use them for engineering design creatively use design skills for new products
