To impart knowledge on behavior and the performance of saturated soil. At the end of this course student attains adequate knowledge in assessing both physical and engineering behaviour of soils, mechanism of stress transfer in two-phase systems and stability analysis of slopes.
"This course is intended to provide the student majoring in civil, architectural and other related areas skills of structural analysis at an intermediate level. It consists of three major topics: Matrix analysis of structures, Plastic
limit analysis and dynamic behavior of structures. The matrix analysis part exposes the student to the elementary skills and procedures in large-scale problems that can only be dealt with using computers. The second topic covers the essential concepts in plastic design of structures. In the third topic, emphasis is placed on the dynamic response analysis of discrete parameter (lumped mass) systems. The behavior and elementary skills of dynamic analysis of discrete parameter systems are studied."
"Upon the completion of the course the student should be
• Calculate the principal stresses and strains in a loaded
• Solve problems using stress transformation and Mohr’s
• Apply Hooke’s law for plane stress and plane strain
• Calculate stresses in thin walled spherical or cylindrical
• Calculate the stresses produced by combined axial,
bending and torsional loads"
With analytic mechanics, many topics of kinematics and dynamics of mechanical systems are introduced. The course Mainly includes: constraints of motion, generalized coordinates, degrees of freedom, principle of virtual work. For fixed-point motion of rigid body, the Euler angles and Euler Equations of kinematics are introduced; and more, parallel planar motion, fixed-axis motion and general motion of rigid bodies are also presented. The equations of motion in non-inertial reference frame and their application are discussed. Lagrangian and Lagrange equations are introduced, and as their applications, central force motions and small oscillations for multi-degrees of freedom mechanical systems are discussed. Center of mass and reference frame of center of mass for many particle systems are presented. Dynamical laws of the particle groups are discussed, and the laws are used to solve mechanical problems. For rigid body dynamics, the inertia tensor and Euler dynamical equation are introduced. From the Lagrange equations of motion, we deduce the canonical equations of motions, the conservations of some mechanical quantities of mechanical systems are discussed. Finally, we discuss the Poisson brackets and Hamilton`s principle and Hamilton-Jacobi equation.
The curriculum of Engineering Drawing studies the theory and method of making and reading engineering drawing. It is a basic specialty course, especially emphasizing practical using. The curriculum is designed for students study technology but in non-mechanical major. Based on the theory of parallel projection, the curriculum teaches the basic theory of making an engineering drawing, introduces related national criterion (GB), and also introduces the making and reading method of specialty drawings. The curriculum includes the training of the skills in manual drawing and the abilities in computer aided drawing.
