E MCH 210H Statics and Strength of Materials, Honors (5)
This honors course is a combination of E MCH 211 and E MCH 213. Students taking E MCH 210H may not take E MCH 211 and 213 for credit, or vice versa. The same general topics are covered as in E MCH 210, but in a more advanced fashion and with more advanced applications. Students will learn how forces and moments acting on rigid and deformable bodies affect reactions both inside and outside the bodies. Students will study the external reactions, and their inter-relationships - the discipline of statics (E MCH 211), as well as the associated internal forces and deformations, quantified by their corresponding stresses and strains - the discipline of strength of materials (E MCH 213). The student will be able to analyze and design simple structural components based on deflection, strength, or stability. Students will be prepared to analyze and design simple structures and take upper division courses in mechanics of materials and structural analysis and design. Students will communicate their analysis through the use of free-body diagrams and logically arranged equations.
