Apply the principles of equilibrium to the problems of solid mechanics to determine external and internal forces and moments , distinguish between statically determinate and indeterminate systems; 2. Explain the concepts of stress , strain , material behavior and distinguish between linear and nonlinear material behavior ( elastic and inelastic ); 3. Formulate and solve mechanical and structural problems involving tension and torsion ; 4. Formulate and solve mechanical and structural problems involving pure bending and transverse loading ; 5. Formulate and solve mechanical problems involving pressure vessels ; 6. Determine various modes of buckling and determine the critical loads of buckling for various boundary conditions ; 7. Analyze the stress-state at a point and determine principal stresses and maximum shear-stress at any point in a simple structural problem; 8. Select , design and analyze a mechanical part based on stress-based and maximum deflection-based design criteria . Fall 2007 MEGR 2144 2 Lecture 01 Syllabus • Textbook: James M.
