Learning Outcomes: 1. Employ the strength of materials theory as a tool to approximately solve the complex stresses and deformations in members of structures and machine elements. 2. Use the factor of safety in design of machine components and structures to compensate for the unforeseen factors and stress concentrations. 3. Analyze tensile and compressive stresses and deformations in bars subject to axial loads. 4. Analyze shear stresses and deformations in circular bars subject to torques. 5. Analyze bending stresses and displacements in beams subject to transverse loads. 6. Identify the instability of long bars under compressive forces, and thus use the theory of columns in design of structures and machine components.
