ENGR 2085 - Deformable Body Mechanics

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This engineering course examines the internal effects and deformations that are caused by applied loads on a body. Topics include stress and strain, material behavior and linear elasticity, uniaxially loaded members, shafts in torsion, beams in bending, shear and moment diagrams, stress and strain transformation, and design of shafts and beams.
