Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
- be able to carry out stability analyses for unstiffened and stiffened rectangular plates,
- be able to carry out structural safety checks according to the theory of plasticity
- be able to carry out fatigue and operational stability tests
They will be able to independently develop and apply subject-related content.

Module content:
- Buckling of rectangular plates: Linear buckling theory, ideal and real buckling stresses under random storage conditions, plate buckling checks according to DIN 18800/Part 3, stiffened rectangular plates
- Basic frame structures: Applying the plasticity theory first order, proofs according to the plastic hinge method
- Fatigue: Very high cycle fatigue and high cycle fatigue verifications for structures with non-stationary loading
