# ME 258 - Mechanics of Materials

Credit Hours: 3

This course covers stress and strain calculations to understand the behavior of material under different types of loading. Topics include fundamental stress-strain relationships, tensile, shear, torsion, bending/flexure, deflections, elongations, deformations, thermal stresses and thin wall cylinders.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

• calculate tensile, and compressive forces, stresses and strains;
• calculate the shear stress and twisting angles due to torsion;
• calculate the stresses generated in the part due to bending load;
• calculate and draw shear and moment diagrams of the beams;
• make safe yet economical design and calculations involving common materials under various conditions;
• solve problems manually and with the use of PC/software;
• perform standard material tests; and
• write technical reports.

Prerequisites: MT 121 or MT 125, ME 114 or permission of the instructor.
Concurrent Registration: ME 259 or permission of the instructor.
