VI. Catalog Course Description
This course introduces students to the basics of strength of materials. Topics include: loading; statically indeterminate structures; temperature and prestrain effects; shear force and bending moment; axial, shear, bearing and bending stresses; deflection of beams; and buckling of columns.
VII. Required Course Content and Direction
  1. Course Learning Goals

    Students will:

    1. analyze the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of strength of materials;
    2. analyze axial, lateral, and torsional loading of shafts and beams;
    3. analyze statically indeterminate structures, and temperature and prestrain effects; and
    4. 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.
  2. Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities

    The following topics are presented:

    1. stress and strain
    2. axial, lateral, and torsional loading of shafts and beams
    3. statically indeterminate structures
    4. temperature and prestrain effects
    5. shear force and bending moment in beams
    6. axial, shear, bearing and bending stresses
    7. deflection of beams
    8. buckling of columns
  3. Assessment Methods for Course Learning Goals

    The evaluative tools may include any or all of the following as specified by the individual instructor's syllabus: objective examinations, research reports, laboratory reports, online activities and discussion, quizzes, projects, and papers.
  4. Reference, Resource, or Learning Materials to be used by Student:

    Students use educational resources as approved by the department and specified in the individual instructor’s format.
