E MCH 315 Mechanical Response of Engineering Materials (2)
The main goal of E MCH 315 is to present mathematical models to describe mechanical behavior of materials and develop skills relevant to understanding the mechanical response of an engineering design using realistic materials. Engineering analysis is emphasized by introducing various material responses to external factors including static loading, cyclic loading, and elevated temperatures. The student will gain a broad base in this area that serves as a foundation for subsequent employment in systems design and testing, or further study in engineering analysis, mechanical design, materials engineering or materials selection. E MCH 315 is an extremely useful and versatile class that has many applications in all engineering disciplines. The general topics include: elastic, viscoelastic, plastic, and creep deformation; temperature effects, stress based failure criteria for ductile and brittle material behavior; creep rupture; fracture mechanics prediction of brittle failure; and failure by fatigue.
