This class introduces engineering aspects of stresses and strains on the engineering structure and the resultant strength in the form of various combinations. This course will give you a comprehensive demonstration on fundamentals of stress-strain-strength, shear and moment diagram of beam, design of beam and column, deflection of beam, combined stresses, Mohr’s circle, design of mechanical components.Key items that will be assessed through this course are the ability to solve engineering problems, design of mechanical components and application of standards and codes in the design. The course will be assessed using various components including midterms, Quiz, Homework, group project and final test.

During the online  version, the class will meet once in a week. This course will be tied up with Blackboard for the access to course contents, assignments,  tests and discussions. Simultaneously the course will be conducted via sessions  in blackboard ultra, which an opportunity for a synchronous face-to-face instruction.

Course Objectives

Learning objectives of this course is as follows-

    1. Ability to draw shear and moment diagram for structurally determinate beams.
      2. Ability to analyze and design beams.
      3. Ability to analyze a load-carrying member subjected to combined stress; determine
      the maximum normal stress, and the maximum shearing stress.
      4. Ability to draw a complete Mohr’s circle for a state of any element.
      5. Ability to compute the slenderness ratio for columns.
      6. Ability to use Euler formula for the analysis and design.
      7. Ability to identify the modes of failure of a bolted connection.
      8. Analyze and design for bearing, tensile, and shear strength.
      9. Ability to utilize computational tools including Matlab in solving strength of Materials related problems.
      10. Communicate effectively using graphs, and appropriate design codes and standards among the peers and the instructors.
