Mechanics and Strength of Materials II

Topics include unsymmetrical and inelastic bending of beams; shear stresses in beams and shear centre; energy principles and virtual work; deflection of beams; statically indeterminate beams; buckling of columns; eccentrically loaded columns; introduction to design of beams and columns; and welded and bolted connections. Laboratory experiments include determination of principal stresses under combined loading, deflection of beams, unsymmetrical and inelastic bending, composite beams, buckling of columns and structural connections.
