2.080[J] 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[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by H. Schmidt and T. Wierzbicki.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Fall 2015 Subject Evaluations, 2.080[J] was rated 4.1 out of 7.0. You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Structural Mechanics site.
