EMTL 300 - Mechanics of Materials


Course Description
Members subjected to various loading conditions (axial, shear, torsion, transverse and combined) will be designed to perform safely, based on regulating bodies and industry practices. Stress concentration factors at geometry discontinuities will be applied and strength and deformation criteria of design will be used. Structural components will be analyzed for combined stress states including stress and strain transformation. Basic design of pressure vessels and the basic requirements of ASME code will be addressed. Critical loads in columns will be determined. Introduction to experimental stress analysis and to FEA for stress analysis and computer simulation will be addressed. Cross-referenced to the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB).
