ENGRD 2020 - Statics and Mechanics of Solids

(crosslisted) MAE 2020 
Fall, spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: PHYS 1112 . Corequisite: MATH 1920  or permission of instructor.


Covers principles of statics, force systems, and equilibrium; frames; mechanics of deformable solids, stress, strain, statically indeterminate problems; mechanical properties of engineering materials; axial force, shearing force, bending moment, thermal stress, stretching; bending and torsion of bars. Laboratory experiments demonstrate basic principles of solid mechanics.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to draw complete and correct free body diagrams.

Outcome 2: Apply the principle of equilibrium to calculate external and internal forces in simple, statically determinant mechanical systems, including simple shear and bending moment distributions.

Outcome 3: Understand the concepts of stress, strain, deformation and elasticity. Analyze the stress, strain and deformation in bars subject to axial, bending and torsional loads.

Outcome 4: Use the principles of elasticity and equilibrium to solve for stresses in simple statically
indeterminate systems.
