Strength of Materials

Course Description

Fundamental concepts of mechanics of deformable solids (static equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material constitutive behavior etc.) Stress and strain, uniaxial tension test, statically indeterminate structures, temperature effects and thermal stress, torsion of circular shafts, simple bending of beams, shear stresses in beams of different cross-sectional shapes, shear centre, combined stresses due to bending, torsion, shear and axial loads, transformation of stresses, failure criteria and stability and buckling.
