Strength of Materials
An introduction to the fundamental concepts and mechanics of deformable solids. Topics include stresses and strains in solids, material behavior, shear forces and bending moments, deflection of beams, torsion of circular shafts, Mohr’s circle for plane stress, pressure vessels, column buckling, statically indeterminate structures, centroids and moments of inertia. Three hours of lecture. Prerequisite: PHEN 210.
