The Design Process
Engineers create stuff. New products. New processes. New systems. New environments. You get the
idea. (I hope).
The process of creating new stuff can be split into distinct steps. Here are the steps:

Engineering Failures: When Things Go Wrong - Pre-Class Reading
Goal:
What is an engineering failure and why does it happen?
Definition of a Failure
Before a person can discuss engineering failures, the definition of a failure must first be determined.

H Beams
We need to use a different approach.
Divide the H-beam into three areas.
Notice the centroids for all three areas are aligned on the X-axis.

Electrical Theory Pre-Class Reading
Goal:
Introduction to the concepts of electricity, resistance, voltage, current, Ohms Law and Kirchhoffs Laws
Electricity
Electrons are the negatively charged particles that orbit around the nucleus of an atom. Electric

Beam Theory Pre-Class Reading
Goal:
To develop an understanding of simply supported structural beams and the equations governing their
response to point loading.
Structural theory describes the behavior of structures under various types of loads and predi

1201 Math and Documentation - Pre-Class Reading
Goal:
Math and documentation in 1201 and beyond
1201 Math
Math in ENGR/ETGR1201 is not difficult. It is basically Algebra 1 with a very small amount of geometry.
But it does require the ability to solve prob
