SENG 203: Strength of Materials I


Objectives: This course is designed to introduce students to the theory and application of engineering mechanics as it relates to statically determinant and indeterminate structural systems; that involves determination of stresses, deformations, and strains. The course includes the use of computational software to solve practical engineering problems numerically.

Description: The course will cover internal resultant loadings in simple plane trusses and beams, elastic properties of solids under tensile and torsional loads, stress, strain, and deformation due to axial, torsional, bending, transverse loads, and simple combined loading will be studied. Also, transformation of stress and stresses in thin-walled pressure vessels will be covered.
