Program description

Introduction to Solid Mechanics

A review of equilibrium for particles and rigid bodies. Application to truss structures. The concepts of deformation, strain, and stress. Equilibrium equations for a continuum. Elements of the theory of linear elasticity. The states of plane stress and plane strain. Solution of elementary elasticity problems (beam bending, torsion of circular bars). Euler buckling in elastic beams.

Program content

  • Learn statics and mechanics of materials
  • Correctly draw freebody
  • Apply the equations of equilibrium to two and three-dimensional solids
  • Understand the concepts of stress and strain
  • Ability to calculate deflections in engineered systems
  • Solve simple boundary value problems in linear elastostatics (tension, torsion, beam bending)
