EGR 211 - Strength of Materials


This course is designed to introduce the student to stress and deformation analysis of basic structural materials subjected to axial, torsional, bending and pressure loads. The primary focus of the course is on the concepts of stress and strain at a point, stress-temperature relationships, force and deformation analysis of bodies under axial, shearing, flexural, torsional and combined loadings, shear and bending moment diagrams, and Euler Columns.

Learning Outcomes:
- Analyze and design structural members subjected to tension, compression, torsion, bending and combined stresses using the fundamental concepts of stress, strain and elastic behavior of materials.
- Utilize appropriate materials in design considering engineering properties, sustainability, cost and weight
- Perform engineering work in accordance with ethical and economic constraints related to the design of structures and machine parts

Prerequisite(s): Completion of EGR 210.
