This course reviews stress and strain in three dimensions, elastic and inelastic material behavior, and energy methods. It also covers use of the strength of materials approach to solving advanced problems of torsion and bending of beams.

Course prerequisites: 

Fundamental understanding of stress and strain and axial, torsion, and bending effects in linear elastic solids.

Course notes: 

Required course for Solids/Mechanics of Materials focus area.

Course instructor:
