The Structural Mechanics module aims at giving the student the knowledge to understand the failure behavior under loading conditions, in case of static and cyclic loading, of structural components. It also aims at allowing to develop the main computations related to structural design and verification of vessels and related topics, taking into account of technical indications of Standards.

A theory part will develop the required topics by means of analytical equations and model development and of analysis of case studies. Class exercises consist in the proposal and solution of exercises concerning practical problems involving concepts developed in lessons with the aim of improving the knowledge and to give the student an indication on the value of the main parameters. A laboratory practical activity will be done. Strains on a pressure vessel will be measured and the comparison with analytical results will be done.

Thermal machines and structural mechanics (Structural mechanics)

The exam is in two parts: a written part (numerical exercises) and an oral part (theory). The total time for written part is 2.5 hours. The written part consists of two exercises, one per each part of the Course, which kind and complexity is similar to exercises done in classes. During the written part it is not possible to read notes or any other documentation; using a single personal A3 note with formulas is allowed, which will be prepared by the student. The oral part will take place according to a calendar which will be available within one day from the written part. The oral part consists in two questions, one per each part of the course, on theory topics. A score equal or higher than 18/30 in both exercises of the written part is required to access the oral part. During the Machine Design oral part, the student can bring the printed report of the experimental laboratory activity on strain measurement on pressure vessel. In this case, the report will be discussed with the professor and a maximum score of 1 point can be added to the average (oral and written parts) of Structural Mechanics. At the end of the oral part, a score related to each part of the Course will be assigned, basing on written and oral parts. The exam is considered positive if the student reaches a score equal or higher than 18/30 in each part of the Course. The final ranking is the average of the scores obtained in each part of the Course.
