MAE 2020

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

Covers principles of statics, force systems, and equilibrium in solid structures. Topics include: free body diagrams in two and three dimensions; frames; mechanics of deformable solids; stress and strain; axial force; shear force, bending moment, and torsion in bars and beams; thermal stress; pressure vessles; statically indeterminate problems; buckling and yielding. 

When Offered Fall, spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 1112; Corequisite: MATH 1920; or permission of instructor.

  • Students will be able to draw complete and correct free body diagrams.
  • Apply the principle of equilibrium to calculate external and internal forces in simple, statically determinant mechanical systems, including simple shear and bending moment distributions.
  • Understand the concepts of stress, strain, deformation and elasticity. Analyze the stress, strain and deformation in bars subject to axial, bending and torsional loads.
  • Use the principles of elasticity and equilibrium to solve for stresses in simple statically indeterminate systems.
