2.080 Structural Mechanics


Class Info

Applies solid mechanics fundamentals to the analysis of marine, civil, and mechanical structures. Continuum concepts of stress, deformation, constitutive response and boundary conditions are reviewed in selected examples. The principle of virtual work guides mechanics modeling of slender structural components (e.g., beams; shafts; cables, frames; plates; shells), leading to appropriate simplifying assumptions. Introduction to elastic stability. Material limits to stress in design. Variational methods for computational structural mechanics analysis.

This class has 2.002 as a prerequisite.

2.080 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by T. Wierzbicki and D. Parks.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 2-105.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
