MATH 275: Introduction to Solid Mechanics


(1 Unit)
Prerequisites: PHYS 167  and PHYS 168 ; MATH 245 .
Statics: Forces, moments and couples; equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies; trusses and frames; distributed loads; Friction. Mechanics: Stress/strain, classification of material behavior, generalized Hooke’s law. Engineering applications: Axial loads, torsion of circular rods and tubes, bending and shear stresses in beams, deflection of beams, combined stresses, stress and strain transformation, Mohr’s circle, elastic stability/buckling of columns. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required in any mathematics course used as a prerequisite for another mathematics course. Same as Physics 275. Mason.
