Strength of Materials II

  • 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.

The course covers the following topics; stress and strain concepts, axial load, statically indeterminate axially loaded members, thermal stress, torsion, angle of twist, statically indeterminate torque-loaded members, bending, eccentric axial loading of beams, transverse shear, shear flow in build-up members, combined loadings, stress and strain transformation, deflection of beams and shafts, statically indeterminate beams and shafts.


Who this Strength of Materials course is for:

  • This course is designed for students who are interested in understanding how the components of any machine or a structure are designed by an engineer.

What Will I Learn?

  • 1. Analyze stresses in two dimensions and understand the concepts of principal stresses and
  • the use of Mohr circles to solve dimensional stress problems.
  • 2. Understand the difference between statically determinate and indeterminate problems.
  • 3. Understand the Mohr’s circle and failure criteria.
  • 4. Understand buckling and critical load concept
  • 5. Comprehend the strain energy and related methods.
