Course Description

261-What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part C - Axial Strength of Materials

Written in an easy to understand style, the course What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part C – Axial Strength of Materials is the third course in the series of courses in the field of study called engineering mechanics. This course focuses on presenting simplified methods of calculations, and the presentation of intuitive methods for the understanding and solving of basic problems. The course contains 18 solved example problems to illustrate the principles discussed.

This Course Includes:

  • stress and strain in a member, and their relationship, including material properties such as Hooke's Law and modulus of elasticity;
  • axial loads in tension and compression, including deformation;
  • shear stresses, including shear modulus of elasticity, single and double shear, and punching shear;
  • design stresses and factors of safety;
  • temperature deformation and thermal stresses, and;
  • cross sectional properties of structural members including determining the centroid of a cross section.

The first two courses in the series, called Statics, focused on solving problems related to the exterior (or externally) applied loads on a stationary body - a body at rest. It is expected that you have a good background in the study of Statics. If you are not familiar with statics, consider taking the two SunCam courses titled What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures Part A – Statics Fundamentals and What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures Part B – Statics Applications.

Significant Figures, Rounding, and the Solution of a Statics Problem – A Quick Review is a zero credit course intended for those who might find themselves a bit rusty and would like a quick refresher. The information in the course is useful for application to the solution of structural problems especially in the fields of statics and strength of materials. This course is free and can be downloaded at: Statistics PDF.

A good follow on to Parts A & B. A good refresher for those not actively engaged in structural design and a reminder on the fundamentals.

261-What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part C - Axial Strength of Materials I enjoyed taking this course. When I take these courses, particularly the structurally related ones, I earnestly try to get a 100%, but usually I manage to skew up a question or so. For this course I got one wrong because I miss-marked the answer ... just like the old days. When am I gonna learn? Regarding the course, it is a nice summary of things that I have learned and if I don't know some of the items right off, the course gives me an opportunity to scrap away some of the rust.

This whole series (A,B,C,D) is excellent. Material is very clearly presented and explained. Just a note that in this course document (#261 Part C - Axial Strength of Mateials) in the drawing at the bottom of page 22, the dimension of the cable should be shown as 8.000 ft and not 8.000 in.

Review was well written and test questions were fair. I am teaching a similar course in high school, so this review was very helpful and gave me some additional ideas for material that should be covered.

I've now taken Parts A-C of this course and have found each part relevant and a great refresher to the basics of Statics. Working in the construction industry, I don't get to use these concepts on a daily basis, but always need to be ready to pull them out of my tool box of knowledge. This course has definitely helped in sharpening those tools.
