Course Number: STR-001
Course Field: Structures
PDH Credits: 3

Course Overview

Strength of materials, also know as mechanics of materials, is focused on analyzing stresses and deflections in materials under load. Knowledge of stresses and deflections allows for the safe design of structures that are capable of supporting their intended loads.

This course discusses:

  • Stress and strain in materials under load, including Hooke's law and the calculation of strain energy
  • Stiffness of structures
  • Stress concentrations
  • Combined stresses and Mohr's Circle
  • Allowable stress design
