Prince George's Community College:EGR 2220: Solid Mechanics

Course Description:

Topics in deformable bodies in axial, torsional, bending, and combined loading. This course extends the introductory strength of materials to intermediate continuum mechanics. Other topics include statically indeterminate and temperature effect analysis; beam, column, and pressure vessel configuration. More advance topics include structural stability, analysis of one and two-dimensional structures, inelastic material behavior and energy methods.
See below for more details.
