Overview of classCOURSE DESCRIPTION / Analytical and experimental study of stresses and deformations and their application to the design of machine and structural elements subjected to static, dynamic, and repeated loads.
Registration RequirementsPrereqs: CIV_ENG 212 or GEN_ENG 205-2
Learning ObjectivesThis course provides an introduction to the analysis of stress and strain distributions in engineering materials under different loading conditions. On completion of the course, students should be able to:
1)Calculate stress and strain distributions and maximum stresses and deformations arising from torsion, bending, shear loads, and general transverse loading;
2)Calculate the principal stress state arising from various types of combined loading using Mohr's circle analysis;
3)Understand the geometry, usefulness, and basic analysis of reinforced concrete and flanged rolled-steel beams;
4)Perform basic engineering design by selecting the most economical beam geometry or composition for a given loading condition;
5)Analyze real stress-strain tests performed in the laboratory and present results in an organized report.
Teaching MethodFour 50-minute lectures/week; One 2-hour lab/week.
