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. Learning Goals:

    1. Course
    2. 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.
