Strength of Materials

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Strength of Materials
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.04.2016
Module code: FT09.3
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
P242-0044, P242-0045, P242-0046
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+2U (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam 120 min.

Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have an overview of the basic stresses occurring on technical components and will be able to identify them for simple problems.
They will be able to calculate the resulting component stresses and deformations as well as to verify the static or dynamic component safety. They will be able to solve simple component dimensioning tasks on the basis of given external loads.
