Essential knowledge of mechanics of materials, including: elastic direct and shear stresses and strains in 2D and 3D; Mohr's circle; real and engineering stresses; geometric properties for doubly and singly symmetric sections; axial, bending, shear and torsional stresses, and effects of plasticity.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis. Student Members and members of the Institution's Academic Community can download the series for free at: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge

Essential Knowledge Text No.11 Triangulated structures

Essential Knowledge Text No.11 Triangulated structures

This is an introduction to the most important aspects of triangulated structures. Triangulated structures are widely used and can provide stiffness with very little structural material. Being formed from many interconnecting parts, a knowledge of several aspects of modelling, analysis and design is needed to be able to understand their structural behaviour.

Essential Knowledge Text No.12 Flexure and flexural structures

Essential Knowledge Text No.12 Flexure and flexural structures

This text is an introduction to the most important aspects of flexure in structures. A description of the widespread use of flexural elements and structures is followed by an introduction to the modelling and analysis of beams, slabs and frames. The text then discusses the use of four common structural materials in flexural elements and structures.

Essential Knowledge Text No.17 Dynamics

Essential Knowledge Text No.17 Dynamics

Structural dynamics is the study of how structures respond to loads that vary rapidly with time. This introduction to the subject, focusing on linear elastic structures, explains how to calculate or estimate the key dynamic properties of simple structures, and outlines the principles used by finite element programs in analysing the dynamics of more complex structures.
