This class was tough.
This course is must for Aerospace, Civil, Mech and Material Science departments. This course deals with forces in structures, the stress and strain created, the change in temperature on application of forces and also the strength of materials to some extent. This course is like an introductory course as the above mentioned departments go further in details with various departmental courses as per the requirements in their fields.
Better understanding of force distribution in bodies, how forces and moments are translated by fixed, hinge and roller joints, stress and strain developed due to application of forces, due to change in temperature and also their combined effect, extent of distortion produced, various instruments to measure strain and also strength of materials.

Advice for students:
This course is a bit tough course of engineering. So, attend your classes regularly, take tutorials sessions very seriously. You will get home assignments every week, try to solve them by yourself. Don't keep your doubts to yourself, get them clarified in tutorial sessions. Try to understand the derivations as there are many formulas and you will end up getting confused. All the best
