Strength of Materials I

  • Course level: All Levels


This Strength of Materials course will help you to understand why engineers have to study Strength of Material and what it is the practical importance of this subject in the engineering world.

This course explores the topic of solid objects subjected to stress and strain. The methods taught in the course are used to predict the response of engineering structures to various types of loading, and to analyze the vulnerability of these structures to various failure modes. Axial loading is the focus of this course.




What Will I Learn?

  • Stress and Strain Fundamentals
  • Stress-Strain Diagrams, Material Properties, and Shear Stress and Strain
  • Stresses on Inclined Planes
  • Stress concentrations, Mohr’s Circle for Plane Strain, and measuring strains
  • Generalized Hooke’s Laws, Factor of Safety, Non-linear behavior and Plasticity, Statically Indeterminate Structures, and Thermal Effects
