2.080 Structural Mechanics


Class Info

Presents fundamental concepts of structural mechanics with applications to marine, civil, and mechanical structures. Covers residual stresses; thermal effects; analysis of beams, columns, tensioned beams, trusses, frames, arches, cables, and shafts of general shape and material, including composites; elastic buckling of columns; exact and approximate methods, energy methods, principle of virtual work, and introduction to computational structural mechanics.

This class has 2.002 as a prerequisite.

2.080 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by T. Wierzbicki and H. Schmidt.

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.
