MEC221 Mechanics of Materials

Mechanics of Materials is a branch of mechanics that studies the relationships between the external loads applied to a deformable body and the intensity of the internal forces acting within the body. The size of the members of a structure, their deflection and their stability depends not only on the internal loadings but also on the type of materials used. In Mechanics of Materials you will learn how to analyse and design structures and calculate the allowable design loads and stresses within their members.
