MEGT 2080 - Strength of Materials

Prerequisite: MEGT 2030  
This course studies the behavior of materials when subjected to different loadings and constraints. Topics include: stress, strain, material properties, properties of cross sectional areas, bending and buckling of members, beam and column analysis, torsion and combined loading. Emphasis is provided on predicting material behavior in various mechanical applications and utilizing fundamental analysis techniques to determine stress in solids under tension, compression, torsion and/or shear. The course includes hands on laboratory exercises such as evaluating beam deflection and the thermal expansion of various metals. Contact hours: Class - 3, Lab - 0. Credit hours: 4 (T)
