Stress Analysis


Course code MEC2402

Every structure or machine has to perform its intended function within a predetermined and acceptable probability of failure.  Stress analysis addresses the stability and strength of structures and machines while under load.

It predicts how force is carried through a structure or machine and how the materials at any point in an individual member resist the force.  As such, stress analysis is essential to the design function and the analysis function.

This is a demanding course and therefore, for some students it would be prudent to enrol in just this course for Trimester 1 study.
