EDMT 215 Statics Strength of Materials

(Contact Hours: 4) Statics and Strength of Materials is a course intended for students in the technology programs. Mathematic skills like algebra and trigonometry are essentially applied to solve problems closely related to basic engineering applications. Generally, problems encountered in the first part of the course include two and three force systems, forces in simple structures, and friction. During the second part of the course, the focus shifts to strength of materials. In this part of the course, topics ranging from the calculation of centroids, moment of inertia, axial and torsional loading, and stress-strain are covered. PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of MATH 106 or MATH 152 is REQUIRED.
