ENGR& 225 Mechanics of Materials

5 credits
This combined lecture-lab course provides engineering students with the fundamental principles and basic concepts used in the study of the engineering behavior of structures and mechanical members subjected to slowly applied or steady state loading conditions. The course will cover the basic relationships between axial, torsion, bending and shear loading acting on solid elements such as rods, shafts, columns and beams and their allowable stresses, strains and deformations. It will also cover Mohr’s circle of stresses and strains.

Prerequisites: CHEM& 161 ENGR& 215 , and MATH 220  

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Apply the knowledge of statics, properties of materials, and basic mathematics to analyze the stress-strain behavior of structural members subjected to slowly applied or steady state loads
  • Differentiate between various static loading conditions of simple structures and formulate progressive solutions to quantify their stress-strain behavior
  • Work individually and function as part of a team to
    • Analyze the stress-strain behavior of simple structural elements under combined loading conditions
    • Design simple beams to meet specific design needs
    • Effectively communicate the results of this work in coherent and legible calculations
