ENGR 006. Mechanics


This course covers fundamental areas of statics and dynamics. Elementary concepts of deformable bodies are explored, including stress-strain relations, flexure, torsion, and internal pressure. Laboratory work includes a MATLAB workshop, experiments on deformable bodies, and a truss-bridge team design competition.
Prerequisite: MATH 015  is required.  PHYS 003  is strongly recommended.
