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, J. Yeo; Spring: A. Moridi.

This course presents the methods for analyzing deformable structures in equilibrium. It is fundamental to mechanical analysis and design and is the basis for many advanced courses and professions in mechanical, civil, materials, biomedical and biological engineering.

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

Outcome 2: Students will be able to 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: Students will be able to use key terminology related to stress, strain, deformation and elasticity along with analyzing the stress, strain and deformation in bars subject to axial, bending and torsional loads.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to use the principles of elasticity and equilibrium to solve for stresses in simple statically indeterminate systems.
