- Principles of Engineering Materials
This course introduces the fundamental concepts of mechanics of materials: stress and strain, Hooke's Law and material behavior. Topics include axial loading, torsional loading, flexural loading of beams, buckling of columns, statically indeterminate problems, principal stresses and strains.
Understanding of the concepts of average stress and strain, and general states of stress and strain at a point, stress and strain relationships, and Hooke's Law [1,2].
Ability to calculate stresses and deformations in members subjected to axial loads [1,2,4].
Ability to calculate stresses and deformations in members subjected to torsional loads [1,2,4].
Ability to calculate stresses and deflections in beams under flexural loading [1,2,4].
Ability to calculate stresses and strains in pressure vessels [1,2,4].
Ability to calculate stresses under combined loading [1,2,4].
Understanding of the concept of Euler buckling of long thin columns [1,2,4].
Understanding of the concepts of stress and strain transformation and principle stresses and strains [1,2,4].
Physical and mathematical principles underlying the concepts presented [1,2].
