The course "Resistance of materials" addresses methods of engineering calculations of strength, rigidity and stability of structural elements. Quality and comprehensive research in the field strengths are prerequisites for creating new designs of machines, equipment and engineering facilities ensures reliability and durability, while improving the weights. 'Strength of Materials "is one of the important and complex technical disciplines studied in the technical schools. In studying the subject students should study the theoretical part of the course, learn about modern methods of studying mechanical properties of materials (laboratory studies) and master the methods of solving problems. Course "Resistance of Materials" is divided into several themes. Some of them are: Theme 1. Main Tasks of the course 'Resistance Materials.

" Strength, stiffness, stability. Issues of affordability. Communication course from general scientific, general engineering and special disciplines. Classification of external forces: active and reactive, surface and volume, lumped and distributed, static and dynamic, fixed and variable over time. Displacement and deformation (linear and angular). Deformation of the elastic and plastic (residual).

The concept of a deformed state at the point. The hypothesis of a deformable body (continuity, uniformity, izotoropnost, linear elasticity). The principle of the initial size. The principle of superposition. Internal forces. Voltage (full, normal, tangents). The method of sections. The concept of stress state at the point of the deformed body. Beam (rod), plates, shells as objects of calculation in the course "Resistance of materials". Internal force factors in the cross section of the rod in the general case of forces, their definition and the procedure for constructing diagrams.
