ENGR& 225 - Mechanics of Materials

5.0 Credits
Introduction to the mechanics of solids, strain and deformation, and stress-strain relationships. Load-carrying capability of elements under tension, compression, torsion, bending, and shear forces (was ENGR 220). Prerequisite: ENGR& 214  (was ENGR 210) and MATH& 152  (was MATH 152) each with a grade of 2.0 or higher.

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Explain the fundamental concepts of mechanics (normal stress/strain, shear stress/strain, deformation), uniaxially loaded members, circular shafts in torsion, and symmetrical beams. [REASON]
  2. Apply Mohr’s circle for transformations of stress and strain. [REASON]
  3. Differentiate between ductile and brittle behavior in materials and apply appropriate safety and design considerations. [REASON]
  4. Solve moment-curvature and differential equations for deflections of beams. [REASON]
