MENG 273 - Strength of Materials

Credits: 3 Total Hours: 75
Restricted to students in Mechanical Engineering Technology
Using the laws of statics as a foundation, students will study topics in basic strength of materials theory including axial, direct shear, torsion, bending, and transverse shear stresses. The Bernoulli-Euler beam theory will be used to predict the deflection of beams, and shear and bending moment diagrams will be constructed. Students will learn how to combine stresses using transformation equations and Mohr’s circle to determine maximum shear and principal stresses, in order to predict elastic failure. Types of failure and welded connections will also be considered. Case studies and practical design examples will be emphasized.
