Unformatted text preview: CIVE 1160 Summer 2011 College of Engineering Plan (Overview of syllabus and course outline) Read the syllabus and course outline. These are some highlights. The best measure of how well I do in this class is how well you do in machine design and structural analysis. CIVE 1160 Summer 2011 College of Engineering Plan (Overview of syllabus and course outline) Statics Quiz: If you cannot find reactions and internal forces, you cannot succeed in this course. This is a stark, brutal reality. Here is my plan. Next class, there will be a quiz covering the aspects of statics essential to this course. If you do not get a satisfactory grade in the statics quiz, you will be required to continue working on your statics skills and retake the quiz. If you decline to complete the review and are not successful retaking the statics quiz, there will be a substantial automatic grade deduction. CIVE 1160 Summer 2011 College of Engineering Plan (Overview of syllabus and course outline) Text: Mechanics of Materials , 8 th Edition, R.C. Hibbeler (Prentice Hall, 2011) CIVE 1160 Summer 2011 College of Engineering Course Objectives: Student will demonstrate by calculations on the quizzes and exams that they: 1) Can find internal and external reactions at any point in a statically determinate structure. 2) Understand linear two dimensional stress-strain relationships. 3) Understand the force-stress and force-deflection relationships for statically determinate and one degree indeterminate prismatic members loaded axially and torsionally. 4) Understand the force-stress and force-deflection relationships for statically determinate beams loading in bending. 5) Understand two dimensional stress and strain transformations. 6) Can solve elementary combined stress problems. You should have a decent handle on (1) now. We will cover the rest. This is just about a complete description of what is on the final exam. CIVE 1160 Summer 2011 College of Engineering Grading: There is no grading curve in the course. There will be quizzes approximately once a week including the statics quiz on May 17 and a final exam.
