Course Description

This unit covers determining stresses and their effect on the strength and stability of simple structures and mechanical components

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

 National Element Code & Title: MEM30006A Calculate stresses in simple structures Element: 1. Determine stresses in simple structures and mechanical components Performance Criteria: 1.1. The shear stresses in simple bolted connections are determined. 1.2. The nominal weld size or length of weld required on simple welded connections is determined to meet load requirements. 1.3. Torque distribution diagrams are drawn and used to calculate torsional shear stress and angle of twist on threaded bolts subjected to torques. Element: 2. Verify stress levels using appropriate reference material Performance Criteria: 2.1. Appropriate reference materials are used to verify that stress loading is acceptable and in accordance with standard operational procedures. 2.2. Verification results are reported according to standard operational procedures.
