ME 3005 - Mechanics of Materials II

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course continues the study of mechanics of deformable bodies. Topics include thermal stress and strain, thin and thick three dimensional stresses, walled pressure vessels, ductile and brittle material failure theories, fluctuation stress, and fatigue. Laboratory topics include experiments to reinforce stress/strain behaviors covered in ME 207  and this course. (prereq: ME 2004 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Determine principal stresses in 3D state of stress
  • Analyze member subject to temperature change
  • Determine stresses in thick and thin-walled pressure vessels
  • Use failure theories under static loading
  • Use fatigues failure criteria for members subject to fluctuating loads
