Mechanics and Strength of Materials I
This course is a study of stress, strain and stress-strain relations. Topics include mechanical properties of engineering materials; principal stresses (statically determinate and statically indeterminate members subjected to axial loads and torsion); shear force and bending moment diagrams; beam theory; eccentric loads; strain energy; pressure vessels; and failure theories. Laboratory experiments include tests for the evaluation of the mechanical properties of materials in tension, torsion, flexure, creep, impact and fatigue; and hardness tests and strain measurements.
