GEN 2012 - Mechanics of Materials

Credits: 4


Study of the fundamental mechanics of how materials behave when subjected to loadings, and how and why materials fail. Fundamental concepts of stress and strain, and the relationships between them. Effects of axial, shear, bending, and torsional loadings on the response of load-carrying members (such as beams, columns, shafts, tubes, and pressure vessels), and methods to determine the stress, stiffness, stability, and external deformations of these systems. Students will conduct laboratory tests for evaluating the engineering behavior of materials, and will analyze, evaluate, and communicate experimental results.

Prerequisite(s): GEN 2010 , MTH 1218 .
