Axial, torsional, transverse and bending loads; compound states of stress, principal stresses and strains; basic theories of failure for ductile and brittle materials; buckling including local buckling effects; basic energy methods; impact theory.
To develop basic competency in the application of the methods of Mechanics of Materials to problems in Mechanical Engineering. The course serves as a foundation for subsequent, required courses: ENME203 (Dynamics and Vibrations), ENME307 (Mechanical Behaviour of Materials) and ENME302 (Computer-aided Mechanical Engineering Analysis).
After completion of the course students should feel they have the ability to perform an engineering mechanics analysis of the following conditions:static loading conditions of standard mechanical engineering systemsaxial loading conditions and resultant stresses in a systemtransverse loading conditions and resultant stresses in a systembending loads and resultant stresses in a systemtorsional loads and resultant stresses in a systemcombined loading within a systembasic failure criteria for a mechanical systembuckling conditions within a mechanical systemstrain energy within a mechanically loaded systemimpact loading within a mechanically loaded system
