Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

The main objective of the course is to provide the students with the necessary design tools for the design and assessment of machine parts, both under static and fatigue loading. The basics of mechanical design are upgraded in order to include advanced theory of elasticity, finite element analysis, design methods for static and fatigue loads (multiaxial and variable amplitude loading) and tools for assessing the influence of defects on static and fatigue strength. Theory of elasticity is extended in order to make it possible to evaluate stresses in typical mechanical parts like pressure vessels, springs, bolted and welded junctions, power transmission shafts, and validate finite element analyses.
