Strength Of Materials
This course covers Introduction to stress and deformation analysis of basic structural
materials subjected to axial, torsional, bending and pressure loads.
To familiarize the students with the use of stress, strain measuring instruments.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Analyze and design structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, bending and combined stresses using the fundamental concepts of stress, strain and elastic behavior of materials.
- Utilize appropriate materials in design considering engineering properties, sustainability, cost and weight.
- Perform engineering work by ethical and economic constraints related to the design of structures and machine parts.
A student on completing this course is expected to:
- Develop an understanding of the engineering fundamentals of structural mechanics of deformable bodies and competence in applying the theory to solve the strength of materials problems.
