Are you interested to know how the material does behave when it is subjected to variable loads, and how to dimension against fatigue? It is known that 80-90% of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue fractures. Are you curious to know how machine parts or mechanical structures are affected by impact loading , for example when a pallet falls down and hit the roof of the truck cabin during the time truck deriver is trying to put the pallet on a shelf? Would you like to know how to dimension screws and bolts when they are subjected to static or dynamic loads? For example, how to dimension the bolts to keep on place the propeller blades in a wind mall? Maybe you would like to know how to calculate welded joints when it is subjected to different types of loads? All that plus how to design to avoid surface damages are going to be treated in this course.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
