The timetable of FE tutorials will be available on MyUni in the beginning of semester. This is a report on the experimental study part of the course.
The timetable for the lab classes will be available on MyUni in the beginning of semester. The final examination is open-book. These are problem-solving exercises. These problems will be discussed in class in detail before the due date. Quizzes are individual in-class assignments and this includes problem-solving exercises to be completed in 45 min with full worked solutions to be available on MyUni. All other assignments and reports must be submitted as a hard copy unless stated otherwise accompanied by an assessment cover sheet available near the assignment submission area.
These must be placed the labelled box on level 2 of Engineering South Building. Extensions for assignments and reports will only be given in exceptional circumstances and a case for this with supporting documentation can be made in writing after a lecture or via email.
Hard copy assignments will be assessed and returned in 2 weeks of the due date. There will be no opportunities for re-submission of work of unacceptable standard. Grades for your performance in this course will be awarded in accordance with the following scheme:. Grade Descriptors are available which provide a general guide to the standard of work that is expected at each grade level.
More information at Assessment for Coursework Programs. Final results for this course will be made available through Access Adelaide. The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching SELT surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design.
They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources e. In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

This section contains links to relevant assessment-related policies and guidelines - all university policies. Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment.
Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice.

This course teaches the fundamentals for the analysis of materials and structures in engineering with a specific focus on aircraft and space structures. The lectures are split into two parallel modules: Solid Mechanics and Materials.
The Solid Mechanics module covers general material relating to the analysis of stresses, strains, deformation, and strength in solid materials and simple components. Specific topics include stress and strain tensors, elasticity, plasticity, elementary solutions of theories of elasticity and plasticity, principles of minimum potential energy, and finite element modelling. The second module, Materials is focused on the application of materials in design of aerospace components and structures.
Topics covered include the application of monolithic materials; metals, polymers and ceramics and composite materials Metal matrix? For composite materials, design, fabrication, properties and applications are discussed. The basic laws and theorems of statics are presented and applied to engineering structures.
Statically determinate trusses, beams, frames, and assembled structures are considered, the line of trust is presented. Internal forces are treated in 2D and 3D. Basic concepts of strength of materials. Behavior of solid bodies. Material laws, constitutive equations: elasticity and plasticity.
Central tension and compression. Design criterion. Pure shear. Steel and carpenter joints. Pure bending. Second moment of inertia. Bending in elastic stress state. Symmetric bending and skew bending. Eccentric tension and compression. Core of section. Materials not having tensile strength. Bending in plastic stress state. Bending combined with shear. Calculation of shear stresses. Design for bending. Normal force — moment interaction curve. Plane stress state. Possible failure conditions: rupture and yield. Elastic energy. The goals of the subject are to show how to - determine the deformations of load-bearing structures - find the internal forces of statically indeterminate structures.
In addition to theoretical methods, we also show examples in structural engineering. Basic conceptual and computational design methods of load-bearing structures are discussed for reinforced concrete-, steel-, timber and masonry buildings. The main goal is to gain knowledge about structural design problems and principles of structural design in order to understand how and why the load-bearing structure influences the work of an architect.
RC beams, columns, slabs, foundations and complete structures are considered. The understanding of the behaviour of RC structures is emphasized. The subject introduces the special load-bearing structures, such as large span, tall and spatial structures.
Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures
We introduce the trusses, box-beams, wall-beams and arches as large span structures. We show the static behavior of tall buildings: the concept of the vertical and horizontal load-bearing structures. The behavior of spatial structures is the main topic of the semester. We introduce the RC shells, the brick-shells, the cable and textile membranes, space-trusses, grid shells.
