PHY 251◊ Engineering Mechanics of Materials

3 credits

Last Update Effective: 8/20/17

An engineering emphasis mechanical physics course that explores external forces acting on deformable bodies. Design principles based on mechanics of solids, including normal stresses, shear stresses, and deformations produced by tensile, compressive, torsional, and bending loading of members; beam deflections, including elastic energy and impact, multi-dimensional stress states, and buckling of columns.

Prerequisite: Placement at RHT 101◊ level; MAT 133◊ or concurrent enrollment

Lecture: 3 hours
