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.

Fall, H. Ritz, A. van Paridon; Spring, A. Moridi.

Covers principles of statics, force systems, and equilibrium in solid structures. Topics include: free body diagrams in two and three dimensions; frames; mechanics of deformable solids; stress and strain; axial force; shear force, bending moment, and torsion in bars and beams; thermal stress; pressure vessles; statically indeterminate problems; buckling and yielding.

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.
