Description
Instruction in the fundamental principles of internal stress, strain, deflection, and deformation of structural members. Emphasis is on stress-strain relationships, Mohr's circle, load, shear, and bending moment diagrams, beam and column analysis and design. Prerequisite: ENGR& 214 or instructor permission. Students may not earn credit for both ENGR& 225 and ENT 222. Formerly CET 222, Engineering Mechanics-Strength of Materials.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Compute stress-strain relationships and stress-strain curves.
  • Demonstrate the use of Mohr's circle.
  • Compute bending and shear stresses.
  • Compute compressive and tensile stresses.
  • Draw shear and moment diagrams.
  • Calculate moments of inertia.
  • Compute deflection calculations.
  • Solve problems involving statically-indeterminate structures.

  • Course Topics
  • Normal and shear stress-strain relationships.
  • Hook's Law.
  • Poisson's Ratio.
  • Torsion.
  • Bending deformation and stresses.
  • Beam analysis and design.
  • Load, shear, and bending moment diagrams.
  • Elastic curves and superposition in beam design.
  • Euler's formula in column design.
