Design Statics and Strength of Materials


Introduction to the fundamental principles used in determining the force and moment dataset that maintain structures in static equilibrium. The corresponding material stresses are determined in a combined state when required. Study includes Mohr’s circle, stress-strain relationships, and factors of safety. Special applications are introduced, including springs, press fits, and torsion of shafts. 3 Credits (3 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): MTH230 and PHS115 or MTH230 and PHS201 or MTH240 and PHS115 or MTH240 and PHS201.
