CF2540 - Mechanics of Solids

This course is included in the Industrial, Mechanical, Mechanical (Manufacturing) and Petroleum Engineering Technology programs’ curriculum as an Engineering science. It is part of a core of courses that introduce students to the fundamentals of applied problem solving. It enables the economical and safe selection of materials for engineering components, which are subjected to loads when in service. Theoretical work supplemented by problem sessions is carried out on general force systems, reactions, free body diagrams; trusses and frames; centroids and second moments of area; shear force and moments in beams; stresses in beams and beam design.
