Mechanics of Solids I
Review of bending moment and shear force diagrams for beams. Stress, strain, stress-strain relations, and factor of safety. Simple loadings: axial force, buckling of columns, torsion, and pure bending. Stresses in combined loadings. Stress and strain transformations in two dimensions. Mohr's circle. Beam deflection, stability of columns. Energy methods.
