Prerequisite: MET 134 Statics, CIV 124 Mechanics (Statics)
2 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Calculate direct normal, shear, and bearing stresses.
2. Understand stress vs. strain graph and be able to determine yield strength, ultimate strength, and modulus of elasticity.
3. Understand design factor and be able to design a member under direct stress.
4. Design circular members under torsion and apply stress concentration factors.
5. Develp shear force and bending moment diagrams for simple and cantilever beams.
6. Apply bending stress and shear stress equations relative to beam design.
7. Operate industry standard mechanical testing machines.
8. Produce clear, concise, and accurate lab reports.
