SYLLABUS (Bachelor of Engineering)
1. Subject name: APPLIED MECHANICS Credit: 3 (theory: 2; practice: 1). Total teaching hours: 75 hours (60 official teaching hours and 15 tutor teaching hours). 2. Lectures:
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tich Thien TRUONG, Senior Lecturer.
3. Teaching department: Department of Engineering Mechanics. 4. Subject descriptions: Applied mechanics is a branch of the physical sciences and the practical application of mechanics. Applied mechanics examines the response of bodies or systems of bodies to external forces. Applied mechanics, as its name suggests, bridges the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. As such, applied mechanics is used in many fields of engineering, especially engineering mechanics. Much of modern engineering mechanics is based on Isaac Newton's laws of motion while the modern practice of their application can be traced back to Stephen Timoshenko, who is said to be the father of modern engineering mechanics. 5. Subject’s objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: • (i) Understand and solve simple problems involving stresses and strain in two and three dimensions. • (ii) Understand the difference between statically determinate and indeterminate problems. • (iii) Understand and carry out simple experiments illustrating properties of materials in tension, compression as well as hardness and impact tests. • (iv) Analyze stresses in two dimensions and understand the concepts of principal stresses and the use of Mohr circles to solve two-dimensional stress problems. • (v) Draw shear force and bending moment diagrams of simple beams and understand the relationships between loading intensity, shearing force and bending moment. • (vi) Compute the bending stresses in beams with one or two materials. • (vii) Calculate the deflection of beams using the direct integration and energy method. • (viii) Apply sound analytical techniques and logical procedures in the solution of engineering problems.
