Course description and aims

This course aims to teach the basic theory of the strength of materials and relate that to the mechanical behavior of materials and structures from stress and deformation. Topics include mechanical properties, stress and complicated stress, bending, twisting, strain energy, impact loading, buckling, stress concentration, plastic deformation and creep, fatigue and fracture, and nondestructive testing methods.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1. acquire basic knowledge related to the strength of materials, such as stress and strain, that are essential to design, production, and operating and maintaining materials and structures.
2. apply their basic knowledge to select materials from their surrounding materials and structures, and determine the form and dimensions of beams or rods.

Keywords

stress, strain, moment

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Towards the end of class, students will be given exercise problems or group work related to what was taught on that day.
