Extended Description: 

This course provides Mechanical Engineering students with an awareness of various responses exhibited by solid engineering materials when subjected to mechanical loadings; an introduction to the physical mechanisms associated with design-limiting behavior of engineering materials, especially stiffness, strength, toughness, and durability; an understanding of basic mechanical properties of engineering materials, testing procedures used to quantify these properties, and ways in which these properties characterize material response; quantitative skills to deal with materials-limiting problems in engineering design; and a basis for materials selection in mechanical design.

Learning Outcomes: 

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

1.use plane stress transformation to find principal stress states

2. understand the principle of virtual work

3. understand small-strain elastic-plastic deformation;
4. understand failure modes for materials;

5. develop an awareness of mechanics to provides base for further study and specialization within solid mechanics, including continuum mechanics; computational mechanics (e.g., finite-element methods).
