Mechanics Of Solids course objectives:


The objective is to learn the fundamental concepts of stress, strain, and deformation of solids with applications to bars, beams, and columns. Detailed study of engineering properties of materials is also of interest. Fundamentals of applying equilibrium, compatibility, and force- deformation relationships to structural elements are emphasized. The students are introduced to advanced concepts of flexibility and stiffness method of structural analysis. The course builds on the fundamental concepts of engineering mechanics course.


This course will advance the students’ development of the following broad capabilities:

  • Students will be able to understand basic concepts of stress, strain and their relations based on linear elasticity. Material behaviors due to different types of loading will be discussed.
  • Students will be able to understand and know how to calculate stresses and deformation of a bar due to an axial loading under uniform and non-uniform conditions.
  • Students will understand how to develop shear-moment diagrams of a beam and find the maximum moment/shear and their locations
  • Students will understand how to calculate normal and shear stresses.


Mechanics Of Solids course outcomes:

  • Analyze the behavior of the solid bodies subjected to various types of loading;
  • Apply knowledge of materials and structural elements to the analysis of simple structures;
  • Undertake problem identification, formulation and solution using a range of analytical methods;
  • Analyze and interpret laboratory data relating to behavior of structures and the materials they are made of, and undertake associated laboratory work individually and in teams.
  • Expectation and capacity to undertake lifelong learning.
