Statics and Strength of Materials MSE 221 (4)
Covers fundamental concepts of Statics and Strength of Materials. Statics: 2D and 3D force and moment systems. equilibrium of rigid bodies, analysis of structures, distributed forces, centroids and moments of inertia. Strength of Materials: introduction to stress and strain, axial loading, torsion, pure bending, analysis and design of beams for bending and combined loading, deflection of beams, and transformation of stresses. Prerequisite: PHYS 140, MATH 152. Students with credit for ENSC 281 or ENSC 385 may not take this course for further credit.
