2.001 Mechanics and Materials I

Class Info

Introduction to statics and the mechanics of deformable solids. Emphasis on the three basic principles of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and material behavior. Stress and its relation to force and moment; strain and its relation to displacement; linear elasticity with thermal expansion. Failure modes. Application to simple engineering structures such as rods, shafts, beams, and trusses. Application to biomechanics of natural materials and structures.

This class has 8.01, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

2.001 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by S. Socrate, M. Culpepper, D. Parks and K. Kamrin.

Lecture occurs 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 10-250.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
