Course Outcomes

LO 1. Stresses

  • Students will be able to calculate and transform axial stress (e.g., Mohr's Circle), shear stress, bearing stress, thermal stress, bending stress, and combined stress.

LO 2. Strains

  • Students will be able to calculate strain, transform strain (e.g., Mohr's Circle), apply stress-strain relations (e.g., Hooke’s Law), and solve statically indeterminate problems.

LO 3. Deflections

  • Students will be able to analyze deflections due to axial, torsion, bending, and shear loads, and manipulate relations between shear and bending moment.

LO 4. Beam/Column Design

  • Students will be able to design beams and columns to carry specified axial, flexure, and shear loads, and predict their deformation and elastic stability (i.e., buckling).

LO 5. Pressure Vessels

  • Students will be able to predict stresses in pressure vessels.
