Extended Description: 

ME 241 is a sophomore-level engineering mechanics course, commonly labelled "Statics and Strength of Materials" or "Introduction to Solid Mechanics". This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and methods of structural mechanics. Topics covered include: static equilibrium, force resultants, support conditions, analysis of determinate planar structures (beams, trusses, frames), stresses and strains in structural elements, states of stress (shear, bending) and displacements and deformations.

Learning Outcomes: 

Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to

1. draw free-body diagrams;

2. apply the equations of equilibrium to two and three dimensional solids;

3. understand the concepts of strain and stress;

4. use the principles of equilibrium of forces and moments, constitutive laws, and compatibility of deformation to calculate stress and deformation in bar structures under axial load;

5. use the principles of equilibrium of forces and moments, constitutive laws, and compatibility of deformation to calculate Torsion and twist angle in the shafts under torsion.

6. use the principles of equilibrium of forces and moments to calculate stress in bar structures under bending;
