ME 80 Professor Levenston Instructional Objectives : last 4 classes calculate the deflections of cantilevered and simply supported beams under prescribed loading by integration of governing equations; calculate the deflections of beams using the principle of superposition (when appropriate); define buckling; determine the critical buckling load for a column of known geometry and material under simply supported end conditions; determine if a simply supported column is more likely to fail due to the maximum stress or buckling criterion; design a simply supported column to achieve a given critical buckling load;
