AET 364 - Strength of Materials and the Design of Wood Structures for Engineering Technology

4 credit(s)
This course is a continuation of AET 355  with the additional application of the design of wood structures. Discussed are stress-and-strain distributions over the critical cross-section of structural members subjected to axial forces, bending moments, and/or torsion. The stress-strain relationship for an axially loaded member is investigated experimentally and analytically. Interrelation between normal stress and shear stress is also analytically and graphically studied. Analysis of statically indeterminate structures using deformation compatibility is introduced. Shear and moment diagrams are reviewed in depth as a continuation from AET 355 . Beam-deflection calculation methods are discussed, with emphasis on using the moment-area method. Use of computers through spreadsheet programming is required. Three lecture hours, three lab hours.
Prerequisite(s): AET 355 , MTH 241 , and PHY 120 ; or permission of instructor or chair.
Laboratory fee.
