- VII. Required Course Content and Direction
Course Learning Goals
- analyze the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of strength of materials;
- analyze axial, lateral, and torsional loading of shafts and beams;
- analyze statically indeterminate structures, and temperature and prestrain effects; and
- apply the theory learned to the analysis of shear force and bending moment in beams; axial, shear, bearing and bending stresses; deflection of beams; and buckling of columns.
