2. Pre-Requisites

Knowledge on mathematics, mechanics and graphic expression.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The Resolución of 15 January of 2009, BOE of 29 January (Orden CIN / 351/2009, 9 February, BOE of 20 February 2009) establishes the requirements that must meet the new degree titles so that habilitate in the exercise of the profession of Technical Industrial Engineer.

It is a common subject of the specialty of Mechanical Engineering in which students are initiated in the study of elastic solids. The knowledge in resistance of materials is provided so that the student obtains the foundations and applications in the analysis of stresses and strains of structural components subjected to constant fixed loads over time. The training in the following course will be completed with the subject "Mechanics of deformable solids".

7. Activities, Units/Modules and Methodology

All training activities will be recoverable, in other words, there must be an alternative evaluation test that allows to reassess the acquisition of the same skills in the ordinary, extraordinary and special call for completion. If exceptionally, the evaluation of any of the training activities cannot be recovered, it must be specified in the description and be expressly authorized by the department.
