Haselton, PhD, PE Office: Langdon 209F Phone: 898-5457 E-mail: chaselton@csuchico.edu Office hours: TBD A. Course Description and Objectives: The goal of this course is for you to develop a solid understanding of the behavior of structural elements (stress, strain, deformations, and buckling) under various loading conditions (bending, axial, shear, and torsion). These topics will build directly upon your previously acquired skills in mathematics, physics, and statics. The topics of this course are fundamental to your understanding of engineering; a firm grasp of these concepts is required for success in further engineering courses and professional practice. B. Course Information: Text: Mechanics of Materials , by Beer, Johnston, and DeWolf, Fourth Edition Prerequisites: CIVL 211 (C- or better) ***must have a solid understanding MECH 210 (concurrent) MATH 260 CIVL 110 Schedule: Section 01: MTWF 11:00-11:50, LANG 105 Section 02: MTWF 12:00-12:50, LANG 105 Grading: Three Midterm Exams 45% Cumulative Final Exam 35% Homework and Quizzes 20% Final Exam: Thursday, December 18 th 4:00-5:50, in THMA 108 Minimum Grade Requirement and Assessment: The Civil and Mechanical Engineering Departments both require a C- or better to advance to the next course. This course is also used as part of the embedded assessment of the Civil Engineering program; a grade of C- or better meets the assessment requirement.
