Applied Statics & Strength Mat
Prerequisite: Math 104 or Math 114. This course develops the procedures and methodology necessary for studying the effects that forces produce on structural and mechanical systems and effectively determining the strength of materials required to safely resist these forces. Topics include the study of friction, motion, forces and the effects of forces on the structural and mechanical systems on which they act, concepts of stress and strain, torsion, and reaction of materials to temperature, unusual environments and mechanical loading. Two class hours and two practicum hours.
