MER 220 - Mechanics of Materials
 
(3 cr.) Students study the behavior of materials under normal, shear, torsional, bending and combined loads. Stress, strain, creep, corrosion, fatigue and material properties are explored. Relationships between the microscopic structure and macroscopic properties of engineering materials are examined. Loading, geometry, functional environment and material properties of machine or structural parts are used to relate the forces applied to a body to resulting internal forces and deformations in order to evaluate performance. Practical applications involving the design of mechanical and structural elements under various loading and environmental conditions are emphasized. Prerequisite: MER 210; Every Year, Fall
