COURSE OBJECTIVE: 1. To develop an understanding of the behavior of structures subject to axial, bending, shearing, torsional or pressure loadings [1, 3, 5] 1 . COURSE OUTCOMES: 1. To calculate forces and moments for simple structures: links, trusses, bars, beams and pressure vessels. 2. To calculate normal and shear stresses under elastic conditions. 3. To calculate principal stresses and maximum shear and to apply ductile failure criteria. 4. To calculate deformations of structures. ASSESSMENT TOOLS: 1. Daily homeworks. 2. 2 one and a half hour tests. 3. 1 final exam. 1 Numbers in brackets correspond to Program outcomes.
