EGR 272 Strength of Materials

A study of the stresses and strains caused by tensile, compression and shearing forces. The course includes stress strain curves and the mechanical properties of engineering materials and investigates shear and bending moment diagrams and stresses due to beam loading. Students also study the strength of bolted and welded joints, torsion and column action. The laboratory includes the study of the general material testing techniques used to analyze the mechanical properties of materials. Prerequisite: EGR 251. Three lecture hours and two laboratory hours per week. Instructional Support Fee applies. 4 credits Fall
