Statics & Strengths of Materials
Introduction to theory and basic principles of statics and strengths of materials. Emphasis will be placed on coplanar force systems, equilibrium conditions of beams, trusses, and simple machines. Stress and deformation, engineering cross sectional properties, bolted and welded joints, shear and moment in beams, combined stresses, built-up sections and introduction to connection analysis.
