24-261 Statics

Department:Mechanical Engineering
Prerequisites:21-118 and 33-106
Related URLs:

This course is the first in a two-semester sequence on the solid mechanics of engineering structures and machines. The course begins with a review of the statics of rigid bodies, which includes the identification of statically indeterminate problems. Two- and three-dimensional statics problems are treated. Thereafter, the course studies stresses and deflections in deformable components. In turn, the topics covered are: simple tension, compression, and shear; thin-walled pressure vessels; torsion; and bending of beams. For each topic, statically indeterminate problems are analyzed and elementary considerations of strength are introduced. 3 hrs. lec., 1 hr. rec./lab.
