A Level


7m 51s
Solids change their shape under the action of forces. This change may be large in the case of springs or hardly noticeable in some structures such as buildings. The study of the deformation of solids is an important aspect of engineering. This topic provides an introduction to both elastic and plastic deformation of materials. Key areas of content discussed include: Stress and strain, Elastic and plastic behaviour
