    This module further develops material taught in the first year with respect to stresses and strains in components and how they may be designed to prevent failure. It considers plane stress and strain conditions, using matrix notation to describe these conditions and the failure criteria that may be applied to these systems. It also considers complex bending conditions in asymmetric and composite beams and the stability of struts. Examples will be drawn from applications in aerospace, mechanical and medical engineering.
