Student Learning Outcomes

1. Apply constitutive and compatibility equations to formulate the stress/strain state as measured by solving elasticity problems.
2. Analyze and design noncircular members in torsion and asymmetric beams in bending.
3. Determine stresses, strains, and/or deflections on real structures as demonstrated by designing structures with realistic constraints.
4. Use current design tools, including MathCAD, SolidWorks, and FEM software with confidence.
