Design Statics & 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.
