Course Description

Strength of materials principles are applied to the stress analysis of machine components and structures. The effects of buckling and combined bending, torsion, and axial loadings are studied together with the effects of stress risers due to geometrical complexities. Topics include: 3D stress transformations; principal stresses; Mohr's circle; failure criteria; torsion of non-circular and hollow cross sections; stress concentration factors; equilibrium and energy methods;global and local buckling; introduction to finite element methods; introduction to composites.
