Undergraduate Edition 2019-2020

ENGT 386 Strength of Materials

Students will have the opportunity to learn how to apply the fundamentals of strength of materials as relate to concepts of stress, strain, shear, bending, torsion, and deflection of deformable bodies such as bars, shafts, beams, columns, and pressure vessels. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency in calculating stresses and strains in bars, beams, and shafts when subjected to axial forces, torsional/ bending moments, thermally induced forces and combinations of these loadings; analyzing external and internal forces and moments; calculating deflections of beams; calculating angles of twist of shafts; and design of bars, shafts, and beams.
