Internal forces and deformations in solids; stress and strain in elastic and plastic solids;
application to simple engineering problems.
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.
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.
