THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics EM 319 – MECHANICS OF SOLIDS FALL 2008 SYLLABUS Unique Numbers: 14120, 14125, 14130, 14135 Instructor: Yannis Korkolis, WRW 109, 471-1077, ikorko@mail.utexas.edu Office Hours: TTh 2:00-3:00 Time: TTh 12:30-2:00 Location: CPE 2.208 Teaching Assistants: Wen-Yea Jang, WRW 109, wyjang@mail.utexas.edu Brian Meason, WRW 311, brian_meason@mail.utexas.edu Adrien Wilbert, WRW 214, awilbert@mail.utexas.edu Catalog Description: Internal forces and deformations in solids; stress and strain in elastic and plastic solids; application to simple engineering problems. Course Objectives: To learn how to determine stresses, strains and displacements in simple structures, subjected to different types of loadings. Understanding the response of materials and the behavior of structures is essential for any sound and safe design. Prerequisites: EM 306 or EM 306S with a grade of at least C, and M 408D or M 308L with a grade of at least C. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Should Have Before Entering This Course: Working knowledge of Statics (Free Body Diagrams, Equilibrium, Centers of Mass etc), Calculus, and Trigonometry. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Gain from this Course (Learning Outcomes): Mechanical behavior of materials and behavior of simple but very common structures, like shafts, tension members, pressurized tanks and beams. Ability to draw Free Body Diagrams and to examine static equilibrium of deformable bodies. Impact On Subsequent Courses In Curriculum:
