Mechanics:   Offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. See Civil Engineering course list for faculty
 
UNDERGRADUATE COURSES:

Mech 234 - Engineering Mechanics ( 2-0-2)
Prerequisites: Phys 111, Math 112. A course for industrial and mechanical engineering students in which the equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies subject to concentrated and distributed forces is studied. Effective From: Spring 2014

Mech 235 - Statics ( 3-0-3)
Prerequisites: Phys 111, Math 112.Available for CE students only. Provides an understanding of equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies subject to concentrated and distributed forces. Effective From: Spring 2014

Mech 236 - Dynamics (2-0-2)
Prerequisites: Mech 234 (or Mech 235 with a grade of C or better or Mech 320). Provides an understanding of the mathematics of the motion of particles and rigid bodies, and of the relation of forces and motion of particles. Effective From: Fall 2011

Mech 236H*** - Honors Dynamics (2-0-2)
Prerequisites: Mech 234 or Mech 235 and enrolled in the Honors College. Course material similar to Mech 236 except in addition, the student will be involved in a research project.

Mech 237 - Strength of Materials ( 3-0-3)
Prerequisites: Mech 235 with a grade of C or better (or Mech 234 for IE, ME majors ) and a working knowledge of statics with emphasis on force equilibrium and free body diagrams. Provides an understanding of the kinds of stress and deformation and how to determine them in a wide range of simple, practical structural problems, and an understanding of the mechanical behavior of materials under various load conditions. Lab should be taken concurrently

Mech 320 - Statics and Strength of Materials (3-0-3)
Prerequisites: Phys 111, Math 112. For chemical engineering and electrical engineering majors. Statics provides an understanding of the equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, including simple machines, trusses, and frictional forces. Mechanics of materials covers pressure vessels, thermal stresses, torsion of shafts, stresses and deflection in beams, and column action. Effective From: Spring 2014

Mech 320H** - Honors Status and Strength of Materials (3-0-3)
Prerequisites: Phys 111, Math 112, and enrolled in the Honors College. For chemical engineering, electrical engineering, and biomedical engineering majors. Course material similar to Mech 320 except in addition, the student will design and perform several laboratory tests.

GRADUATE COURSES:

Mech 540 - Advanced Strength of Materials (3 credits)
Prerequisite: mechanics of deformable bodies. Topics beyond the scope of elementary mechanics of deformable bodies are studied with particular emphasis on the assumptions, limitations, and applications to actual problems. Effective Until: Fall 2011

Mech 630 - Theory of Elasticity (3 credits)
Prerequisite: differential equations. Theory of elasticity as basis for both advanced stress analysis and for a critical examination of elementary stress analysis.
