EGR 264 Strength of Materials

Spring Semester

Students in Strength of Materials learn to calculate the stresses and deformations in beams, shafts, and other mechanical components subjected to various loads.  We begin with the concepts of loads, displacements, stresses, strains, and deformations in solids.  From there, topics of study include the laws of elasticity, properties of engineering materials, analysis and design of bar-type members subject to axial loading, torsion, bending, shear, and combined loading, the principle of superposition, pressure vessels, Mohr’s circle, and deflection in beams. Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in ME 250 or EGR 250 . Corequisite: EGR 265 .
