EGR 218 - Strength of Materials

Credits: 4
3 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EGR 150  

(Formerly MET-211) This course builds upon the curriculum from course EGR 150 . Included is the study of stress and strain, center of gravity, moment of inertia, torsion, shear and moment in beams, stresses in beams, beam deflection, combined loading, connections by riveting, bolting, welding, and columns.
