Introduction to structural integrity

Introduction

Unit image

Structural integrity is the study of the safe design and assessment of components and structures under load, and has become increasingly important in engineering design. It integrates aspects of stress analysis, materials behaviour and the mechanics of failure into the engineering design process.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Structural integrity: designing against failure (T357). [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
