Shearing stresses in beams. Transformation of stress. Deflection of beams. Columns. Energy methods. Instructor L. P. Andrusiv, Ph.D., SH 212, 852-7749. Office hours: MWF 12:00 – 1:00 PM or by appointment. E-mail: [email protected] Text F.B.Beer, E.R.Johnston, J.T.DeWolf Mechanics of Materials , 4 th Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2003 Educational Objectives The course supports Mechanical Engineering program objectives by developing: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering in the field of mechanical engineering. An ability to identify, formulate and solve problems in the field of mechanical engineering. An ability to apply the principles of mechanics of materials to the design and analysis of machines and structures in the context of engineering applications An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for the practice of mechanical engineering. Professional Component The focus of this course is on the mechanics of solids, including stress and strain, loads and deflections, transformation of stress, columns, and energy methods. Students will learn the applications of Mechanics of Materials in Machine Design course. Organization Three 75-minute sessions (MWF, 8:00-9:15AM, SH 208) per week devoted to lecture, problem solving, and homework discussion. Grading Course grades will be based on quizzes, three midterm examinations, graded homework, and a comprehensive final examination. Relative weighting is as follows: Homework 10% Quizzes 15% Exams 40% Final Exam 35% The scale below will be used to assign letter grades. These percentages may be lowered, depending on the class score distribution. +’s and –‘s may be used as appropriate near “borderlines”. 90 -100
