CPE 219 Statics and Mechanics of Materials (3)

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the mechanics of materials for engineering students in the departments of Electrical and Chemical and Paper Engineering. The course stresses statics, mechanics of deformable media, and material behavior. Elements of dynamics, elasticity, and viscoelasticity will be covered. The central theme of the course that binds these subjects together is proper problem formulation in terms of kinematics, constitutive behavior, equilibrium, and compatibility. Not open to MME majors.

Prerequisite: EAS 102 or equivalent. Co-requisite: PHY 181.
