Introductory course focused on the use of solid and structural mechanics to quantify elementary behavior of metal structures in order to enable design. The course is project focused; with the students preparing a complete and detailed design deliverable. The course considers applications from civil structures, naval architecture, and aerospace engineering.
When Offered Spring.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ENGRD 2020 or permission of instructor.
