Strength of Materials II (ENME 501)

Offered By:  Engineering and Materials Science Faculty


The course is the extension of the course Strength of Materials I. The basics learnt in the previous course are extended to more complex geometry and loading conditions. Furthermore, this course extends stress analysis to general fatigue loading as well as to visco-elastic and visco-plastic materials behaviour. The topics conveyed in this course are:

  • General stress and strain state; three dimensional Hook's law
  • Engineering methods models for visco elastic and viscoplastic materials
  • Models for cyclic deformation in ductile polycrystals
  • Models for predicting fatigue crack initiation in ductile solids
  • Models for cyclic deformation and crack initiation in brittle solids
