VI. Catalog Course Description
This course provides a non-calculus analysis of applied strength of materials. Topics include: mechanical properties of materials; stress and strain analysis; loading in the design of shafts and beams; shear force and bending moment; axial, shear, deflection of beams; and buckling of columns.
VII. Required Course Content and Direction
  1. Learning Goals:

    1. Course
    2. Students will:
      1. evaluate the mechanical properties of materials;
      2. analyze and explain the theory behind, and the applications of stress and strain;
      3. examine axial, lateral, and torsional loading in the design and analysis of shafts and beams;
      4. apply the theory learned to the analysis of shear force and bending moment in beams, and to the deflection of beams; and
      5. evaluate and explain the buckling of columns.
