PREREQUISITES Engr 152 Statics DATES Course Begins : Tuesday, February 2, 2010 Last Day : Tuesday, May 25, 2010 Final : Thursday, May 27, 2010: 2:00 – 4:00 pm Course Description: A study of stresses, strains, and deformations due to various loads on bars, shafts, beams and pressure vessels. Topics include combined loading, stress and strain transformation, Mohr’s Circle, ductile and brittle failure theories, and the buckling of columns. Course Goals: To encourage and enable students to: understand the concepts of stress and strain, and how to calculate these quantities. understand basic mechanical properties of materials. develop skills in modeling structural systems. understand how overall system geometry, materials, shape and loading affect how structural systems carry and deflect under those loads. Course Outcomes: At the end of this course, students should be able to demonstrate the following: determine the internal loads (forces and moments) in each structural member of an engineering system, given an external loading condition. identify the applicable theory, and apply the appropriate equations to calculate the internal stresses, strains and/or displacements in axial members, torsion members, beams, pressure vessels and bolted connections. determine the stresses, strains and displacements in members subjected to combined loading. perform coordinate transformations of stresses and strains at a point, including using Mohr’s Circle. determine if a structural system meets its design specifications, and/or determine how the system will fail, given or having calculated the stresses, strains and displacements. determine the buckling loads of various columns.
