Learning outcomes O1 - To have knowledge of the basic concepts of Solid Mechanics, such as displacements, extensions and tensions, tensors of extensions and tensions.
O2 - Ability in performing one-dimensional, flat and general analyses of extensions and voltages.
O3 - Ability of the way of evaluating the balance of a point inside and on the surface of a body.
O4 - Ability in the use of the constitutive equations to make the transition between the field of tensions and the field of extensions and vice-versa, in particular for isotropic and orthotropic materials.
O5 - To have knowledge of the basic elastic limit criteria for ductile and fragile materials.
O6 - Recognize the need to check whether a given state of tension produces or does not yield or break the material.
Syllabus C1 - Review of Vectors and some Basic Concepts of 2nd Order Tensors.
C2 - Deformation State.
C3 – Stress State.
C4 - Constitutive relationships for materials with linear elasticity.
C5 - Elastic Limit Criteria. Yield criteria for ductile materials. Failure criteria for brittle materials.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria This course lasts one semester, involving 60 hours of contact with the teaching team, 98 hours of autonomous work and 10 hours for evaluation (total: 168 hours). The approval of this course unit confers the student 6 ECTS.
The classes are organized in theoretical classes - T (theoretical approach, with complementary examples of concepts through practical problems) and practical classes - P (resolution accompanied by practical problems that cover all the programmatic contents).
The evaluation is carried out in two phases:
- Continuous assessment: tests with two components, one theoretical and another practical, the second of much greater weight than the first one, during the semester;
- Final exam (with a theoretical and practical part) for students admitted.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
