AE 2012 - Mechanics of Materials II

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course continues the development of elastic solid mechanics. Areas covered are stress transformation and principal stresses, deflection of statically determinate beams and an introduction to the analysis of statically indeterminate beams, elastic buckling of columns, and energy methods. (prereq: AE 2011 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Determine shear stress and shear flow in beams
  • Calculate stress in pressure vessels
  • Use transformation equations and Mohr’s Circle to determine principal stress and maximum shear stress
  • Determine normal and shear stress in beams subjected to axial + bending + shear + torsional loading
  • Calculate displacement due to bending and use this to analyze flexurally indeterminate beams.
  • Determine elastic buckling capacity of columns
  • Apply concepts of work and strain energy to calculate displacement due to axial, and flexural loads in statically determinate structures

Prerequisites by Topic
  • Concepts and applications of static equilibrium

Course Topics
  • Shear stress and shear flow in beams
  • Normal and shear stress due to combined loadings
  • Pressure vessels, stress transformation, principal stresses, Mohr’s circle, failure theories
  • Beam deflections, statically indeterminate beams
  • Elastic column stability
  • Strain energy, work, and displacement
