Strength of Materials (CIT-210)
A study of the relationship between the external forces on a body and the resulting internal stresses and deformations caused to that body. Topics include the mechanical/structural properties of materials, shear and moment diagrams, beam stresses and deflections, design of beams and columns, connections, and torsion in members. Calculations use units from both the English and SI (Metric) systems. Computer software programs are used to analyze and solve typical problems. Prerequisite: MET 112. 3 lecture hours and 1 laboratory hour per week. 3 credit hours.
