Upon
completion of this course, the student shall be able to:

- Define the concepts of stress and strain due to elastic and plastic deformations.
- Identify the mechanical properties of materials.
- Apply Hooke’s law and know its limitations.
- Calculate stress (normal and shear) in a structural component loaded in various ways.
- Analyze axially loaded members.
- Use stress concentration factors to find stresses in axially loaded members.
- Analyze deformations in structures due to thermal effects.
- Determine stresses and/or strains in torsional member.
- Write equations of shear and bending moment in terms of position and draw the corresponding diagrams for beams subjected to some combination of concentrated loads, distributed loads, and moments.
- Calculate normal and shearing stresses in beams.
- Design members using strength criteria.
