Course Description

307-Combined Stress and Mohr’s Circle

Stress analysis is a fundamental part of engineering. Loading that causes a single type of stress include simple axial loads, torsional load, and bending loads. In practice, however, it is common to encounter combined loading where the basic equations of shear, torsion, and bending do not apply.

It is critical that engineers understand stresses caused by different combined loading conditions and be able to determine the location of maximum stress. This course covers stresses caused by common types of combined loading. Some combinations, such as combined bending and axial loading, are solved using superposition methods. Other complex combinations, combining normal and shearing stresses, are solved using Mohr’s circle. Concepts are illustrated by using common applications in examples.

Statics concepts, such as rigid body equilibrium, will be used in this course and on exam questions. Topics from mechanics of materials, such as simple stress and beam moment, are used throughout the course and exam.

I have a few questions and math discrepancies that if you can help me to resolve. Test question #6; . . . Overall, good but difficult course. Thank you, Pete,500.

The idea behind the course and the layout of the course are good--and what I was looking for. However, the typographical errors in the syllabus made it really hard to follow (such as showing sigma x + sigma y instead of - sigma y in the formula for radius). Near the end, there are several segments without worked examples. Users are required to use the section modulus of a round section near the end, but without explanation of what constitutes the parts of it. In the Tr/J formula, there is no explanation of what r is. With some work and a minimal few more explanations, this would be a great course. Having said that, it really would be tough going for a true novice without a few more explanations.

Enjoyed the review, the test questions that I used didn't match with the answers provided in questions 9, 18, & 23.
