Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_ understand the terms stress (normal stress, shear stress) and cross-sectional values.  
_ be able to calculate stress for standard cross-sections and loads reliably.
_ understand the concept of the verification of load-bearing capacity and be able to apply it.

Module content:
_ Safety concept, partial safety coefficients
_ Stress, strain, E-Modul, Hooke´s law, Euler-Bernoulli beam theory, structural robustness
_ Cross-section properties: Moment of inertia, moment of resistance, static moment
_ Normal stress due to normal force and bending (including double bending)
_ Shear stress due to shear force
_ Principal stresses  
_ Stress on building components without tensile strength (gaping joint)
