Course Objectives A thorough understanding of structural members and their strength, stiffness and stability. Develop the capability to solve practical engineering problems involving stress and strain analysis in elementary structural members, such as bars and beams. A thorough understanding of concepts related to strength, stiffness and stability of structures needed for engineering analysis and design. Develop the capability to design new structural members. Develop the capability to check and verify the safety of existing structures.
Textbook Strength of Materials, R.K. Bansal, Fourth Edition (also Mechanics of Materials, R.C. Hibbeler, SI 8th edition)
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Analyze relationships between stress, strain and displacement in deformable bodies.
  2. Find the stress state of bodies subjected to axial, torsional, transverse, and/or bending loads
  3. Transform plane stresses into a different coordinate system.
  4. Calculate the stability limits of members subjected to axial compressive loads.
  5. Design members and simulate with solidworks
Teaching Methods Class discussions with examples. Student design project. Active tutorial sessions for engaged learning and continuous feedback on progress.
