MC478 (Version: 2020 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MC478 STRUCTURAL MECHANICS 2020 1 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The course extends the coverage of Mechanics of Materials to the analysis of structural elements found in civil and mechanical engineering applications. Topics include stress/strain transformation, Mohr's circle, Generalized Hooke's Law, failure theory, fatigue and fracture mechanics and the basic theory of elasticity in three dimensions. Also covered in varying depth are numerical methods and experimental methods as they apply to structural mechanics. Students investigate the combined effects of axial, torsion, flexural, and shear loads on members with complex geometries and cross sections. Coverage includes the generalized flexure theory and the concept of a shear center, torsion of non-circular cross-sections, and thick-walled cylinders.

COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MC478 STRUCTURAL MECHANICS 2011 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The course extends the coverage of Mechanics of Materials to the analysis of elements commonly found in civil and mechanical engineering applications. Topics include stress/strain transformation, Mohr's circle, Generalized Hooke's Law, failure theory, fatigue and fracture mechanics and the basic theory of elasticity in three dimensions. Also covered in varying depth are the numerical methods of finite element analysis, and the experimental methods of electrical resistance strain gages and photoelasticity. Students investigate the combined effects of axial, torsion, flexural, and shear loads on members with complex geometries and cross sections. Coverage includes the generalized flexure theory and shear center, torsion of non-circular cross-sections, and thick-walled cylinders.
