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. Prerequisite
ENGR& 214 and MATH& 152 with a minimum grade of 2.0. Corequisite

Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this 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.
  2. Apply Mohr’s circle for transformations of stress and strain.
  3. Differentiate between ductile and brittle behavior in materials and apply appropriate safety and design considerations.
  4. Solve moment-curvature and differential equations for deflections of beams.
