Study of forces that act on a structural member. These forces affect all types of structures including parts of machines. This course will emphasis the use of statistics as it applies to building structures. Students look at types of force systems, vectors, resultant forces, moments, truss analysis and reactions. Strength of Materials provides the various analytical tools necessary for the sizing of specific structural members based on the loading conditions and strength of the material. The student will gain the knowledge necessary to calculate the sizes of members made of specific materials including wood, steel and masonry.
