CE:117Statics and Strength of Materials3

This course deals with the fundamental principles of structural design. Topics include the analysis of structures to determine internal and external forces and the design of members and connections based on allowable bending, tension, compression and shearing stresses. The graphical analysis of statics problems is included. Students considering careers as architects or engineers should enroll in this course, rather than in Structures for Technicians. Additional lab hours required. Prerequisites: MTH 124 or equivalent and Reading Proficiency.
