Teaching Activities

  • ME 211

An initial course in applied vector mechanics with emphasis on static equilibrium. Topics include forces, moments, couples, equivalent force-couple systems, centroids, distributed forces, and Coulomb friction. The application of the free body diagram in the analysis of static equilibrium of frames, machines and trusses is stressed.

  • ME 212 Solid Mechanics

A first course in mechanics of deformable bodies with emphasis on the engineering approach to the responses of these bodies to various types of loadings. Topics include stress-strain relationships, stress-strain analysis, stress and strain transformation (Mohr’s circle), load-deflection, bending, torsion, buckling, and thermal effects.

  • ME 313 Material Science

An introductory course in physical and mechanical properties of engineering design materials, ceramics and plastics, their structures, use in engineering applications and failure phenomena.
