This course introduces the engineering behavior of real materials, including stress/strain at a point, principle stresses and strains, stress-strain relationships, determination of stresses and deformations in situations involving axial loading, torsional loading of circular cross sections, and flexural loading of straight members. Also covers stresses due to combined loading and buckling of columns. Vector algebra and differential calculus are used throughout this course. Group 2 course.
