  • fundamental concepts of elastostatics
  • tension compression in bars (stress, strain, material law, bar systems)
  • stress state (transformation relations, principal stresses, Mohr’s circle)
  • strain state (strain and shear)
  • law of elasticity and strength hypothesis
  • beam bending (moment of inertia of area, ordinary and oblique bending, transversal shear)
  • torsion (circular cylinder shaft, open and closed thin-walled cross sections)
