Mechanics of Solids - Lecture 1 How to get prepared for the exams In both mid-term and final exams at least 70% of the questions will be testing your problem solving skills. Also, almost all assignments and tutorials will be on problem solving. To improve on problem solving you should attend the tutorial sessions and do the assignments. There will be multiple choice questions to test your understanding of the taught principles To get comfortable with multiple choice questions you should pay attention to the lectures and make sure you understand the material in your lecture notes and/or suggested books Mechanics of Solids - Lecture 1 Class rules Lectures begin within 5 minutes past the hour Disruptive behaviour will NOT be tolerated! (no talking, no mobile phones!!) Class participation is encouraged ! If you dont understand something during the lecture please ask during the office hours! Your comments and criticism expressed to myself after the class are most welcome!! Office hours: Tuesdays 3:00-5:00 Mechanics of Solids - Lecture 1 Outline-Introduction (Motivation)-Statics (Static Equilibrium, Boundary conditions and Support reactions, Internal forces and types)-Stress (Allowable limit, Normal stress, Shear stress) Outline-Strain (Normal strain, Shear strain)-Mechanical Properties of Materials (Stress-strain relation, Hookes law) Mechanics of Solids - Lecture 1 Introduction to Mechanics of Solids In this course we will be studying the effects of external forces on deformable bodies ....
