MER 214 – Strength of Materials

Course Description:  A branch of applied mechanics that deals with the behavior of solid bodies subjected to various types of loading. The solid bodies considered in this course include axially-loaded members, shafts in torsion, thin shells, beams, columns, and structures that are assemblies of these components.  Strength of materials analysis determines the stresses, strains, and displacements produced by the loads.  Includes a laboratory component.  Prerequisite: MER 201 and MER 213.
