MAR3039 : Marine Structures II
- Offered for Year: 2018/19
- Module Leader(s): Dr Yongchang Pu
- Other Staff: Professor Bob Dow
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
The aims of the module are:
A1 - To introduce fracture mechanics and fatigue analysis
A2 - To introduce the effects of shear stress in beams
A3 - To predict structural responses of structures under torsion
A4 - To deliver knowledge and skills to undertake finite element analysis for frame and plated structures.
Outline Of Syllabus
The module increases the awareness of structural behaviour and develops advanced structural and material concepts.
Topics include: finite element methods; shear stress in beams; torsion in open and closed thin-walled cross-sections; two-dimensional plane stress analysis - Airy stress function; stress concentration factors, fracture mechanics and fatigue analysis of marine structures.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Formal lectures are designed to deliver the theories and their relation to the current practice in the design and to explain the use of major techniques. (IKO1-IKO6).
The tutorial and practical sessions are a mix of supervised and self-organising activities in which the students practise use of the methods and apply to marine structures (ISO1-ISO4).
The independent study gives time for the students to read the classic and leading edge papers on those topics.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The exam allows students to demonstrate basic knowledge of the descriptive material and of the theoretical methods taught (IKO1-IKO6).
The report of the coursework tests the ability to write reports, derive mathematical expressions, solve 'real life' problems and apply the taught methods. (IKO1-IKO6, ISO2-ISO4).
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
Semester 1 Study Abroad students would be required to sit an alternative examination in the December examination period.
