EGR 336: Mechanics of Deformable Bodies

An introduction to the effects of forces on solid bodies. Structures will be analyzed under axial, shear, torsional, and bending loads.  Students learn to assess structures in terms of stress, strain, and deflection under the various type of loading. The course emphasizes individual and group problem-solving.  Students apply course concepts to build and evaluate their own structures during hands-on design projects. Prerequisites: EGR 231 and MAT 122.
