Engineering Stress Analysis

MET 3100 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Covers theoretical principles and methods for analyzing and quantifying mechanical stresses in members and systems subjected to loads. Studies the effects of axial, transversal, and torsional loads, such as elongation, deflection, twisting, buckling, and rupture. Allowable loads and mechanical properties of engineering materials are concatenated to the concept and the prediction of mechanical failure. Covers normal, shear, bearing, and torsional stresses and strains, as well as methods to design mechanical elements by examining their condition of load and the ability of materials to withstand stresses. Concentrates on stresses within the elastic region of mechanical behavior, and includes factors of safety, thermal stresses, geometric concentration of stresses, combined stresses, and theories of failure.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
