Course Objectives

1) analyze the stresses and strains in load carrying members due to direct axial tensile and compressive forces

2) determine the torsional shear stress and deformation

3) compute the stresses due to bending in beams

4) calculate the deflection of beams due to a variety of loading and support conditions using double integration

5) moment area and superposition method

6) analyze stresses in beams under combined axial and flexure loads, eccentric loads and unsymmetrical bending

7) analyze stresses in two dimensions and understand the concepts of principal stresses and the use of Mohr circles to solve dimensional stress problems

8) understand the differences between statically determine and indeterminate problems

9) compute thermal stresses and deformation

10) compute the stress in thin-walled pressure vessels due to internal pressure
