Course Description for Mechanics of Materials

CES3104C: Mechanics of Materials
Prerequisite:  C or better in EGN 3311 or equivalent.
Description: The concept of stress and strain is covered and includes topics such as normal stress and strain, Hooke's Law, and stress transformation Mohr's Circle. Deformations in axially loaded members are included with some focus on statically indeterminate members. Shafts subjected to torsion and flexural members are covered. Shear and Bending Moment diagrams are emphasized with an introduction to member design. Deflection of beams and columns buckling are introduced. Hands-on Laboratory exercises are also included to investigate stress and strain.
