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.

2.002 Mechanics and Materials II

Class Info

Introduces mechanical behavior of engineering materials, and the use of materials in mechanical design. Emphasizes the fundamentals of mechanical behavior of materials, as well as design with materials. Major topics: elasticity, plasticity, limit analysis, fatigue, fracture, and creep. Materials selection. Laboratory experiments involving projects related to materials in mechanical design. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity; preference to Course 2 majors and minors.

This class has 2.001, 3.091, and 5.111 as prerequisites.

2.002 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by P. Reis, K. Kamrin and L. Anand.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 3-270.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
