Students learn the application of physics (statics) and materials science theory to the analysis and design of structural members. The principles of axial, shear, and torsional stresses, shear flow, bending stress, and combined stresses are covered. Shear and bending moment characteristics are related to the flexural formula, including such tools as the moment-area method and the three-moment theorem. Design of pressure vessels, columns, and other systems is emphasized. 3 hrs. lect. Prerequisite: MAT 180. Corequisite: ENR 215.
