CF2531 - Strength of Materials II
This is the second 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 calculate and plot shearing forces and bending moments in beams, analyze shear stress, bending stress and deflections in statically determinate and statically indeterminate beams, analyze stresses in columns and connections, calculate combined stress in members subject to bending and direct stresses, and calculate stresses in welded and bolted connections. Laboratories include testing of beams, columns and connections under applied loads.
This course is offered in the following programs:
