CF2530 - Strength of Materials I

This is the first of two courses in the study of statics and strength of materials in preparation for further study in design-oriented courses. Learners will learn to analyze forces in structures and basic requirements to ensure safety of structures under applied loads. Major topics include: statics, basic concepts in strength of materials, centroids and moments of inertia, design properties of materials, direct stress, deformation and design, and torsional shear stress and torsional deformation. Laboratories include tensile, compression and shear testing of various engineering materials.
