096246 - MECHANICAL BEHAVIOUR AND FAILURE OF METALS

Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The main objective of the course is to provide the students with the necessary tools for the basic design and assessment of machine components, both under static and fatigue loading. The basics of mechanical design are upgraded in order to include design methods for static and fatigue loads and tools for assessing the influence of defects on static and fatigue strength.

Theory of elasticity is extended in order to evaluate stresses in presence of notches by the definition of theoretical stress concentration factor and to evaluate the initial yielding and the fully plastc collapse. Composite materials are introduced and in particular the concept of anisotropic Hooke's law, orthotropic materials, elastic modulus parallel and transverse to fibres, failure criteria for orthotropic materials are given.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi

The students will possess the knowledge of the main tools used for the basic design and assessment of machine components subjected to static and fatigue loading. Thanks to the practices that are focussed on case studies, the students will improve the skills necessary for practical design application. The case studies will provide the capability to approach the solution of a problem and critically discuss the results. An intermediate homework that the students are asked to write will improve the capability on writing a technical report.
