CPE 219 Statics and Mechanics of Materials (4)

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the mechanics of materials for Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering students. The course stresses statics, dynamics, and mechanics of deformable media, and material behavior. Advanced topics in constitutive modeling, structural stability, and vibrations that are relevant to bio/chem engineering will be introduced and related to the course materials. The central theme of the course that binds these objects together is proper problem formulation in terms of kinematics, constitutive behavior, equilibrium, and compatibility.

Prerequisites: MTH 251 and PHY 181.
