Textbook:


Statics and Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Approach


Riley, Sturges and Morris. Wiley, 2
nd

Edition.

Course Description:
(Prerequisites:

Calculus I and II, Physics I, and Statics
)

This course is an introduction to the field of
Solid Mechanics
. The course consists of studying the behavior
of structural members and machine components under applied loading. The applied loads consist of axial

forces, transverse forces, torques, moments and combinations thereof. These loads, which are
transmitted through structural members and machine components via internal stresses, result in
deformations of these components (i.e. strain). Structural members

and machine components are
modeled as bars, shafts, beams and columns, which stretch, twist, bend and buckle under applied loads.
Implications of mechanical behavior on the design of machine components and structural members are
stressed throughout the co
urse.

Grading Policy:

Homework (25%).


Approximately 10 homework problems per week will be assigned. Assignments
must be done on
engineering paper

in the format specified by the instructor
(Known, Find, Given, Diagram, Analysis). A sample of the required

format is
attached. Assignments are due at the beginning of the class on the day
announced by the instructor. Late assignments will not be collected (Late = 0),
but the lowest homework grade will be dropped. Homework will be done in teams
as described
on page 3.

Weekly Quizzes (20%).


A short quiz will be given on each day that the homework is due and will cover the
same material as the homework that is being turned in. The quizzes will be begin
promptly at the beginning of class. and will be timed (ap
prox. 10 minutes). No
make up quizzes will be given for any reason (please don’t even ask). The lowest
quiz score will be dropped.

Midterm Exam (25%).


A 1
-
hour midterm examination will be given approximately the 4
th

week of class.

Final Exam (30%).


A 2
-
hour comprehensive final exam will be given during finals week. A one

1/2

x 11 inch formula sheet (prepared by the student) is permitted.

Attendance Policy

Attendance at each class is absolutely required. Sleeping in class is forbidden. Note
books and
calculators must be brought to each class.

Problem Sessions

In addition to the regular class hours, a "voluntary" problem session will be held one evening each
week.

Rules for Assigned Teams


1. You must do all assignments (hom
ework and class) within your assigned team. NO
EXCEPTIONS. You will receive a grade of “0” for any assignment(s) done individually.

2. Teams shall consist of 3 or 4 members only.

3. You must remain in your team for the duration of the semester; no team h
opping, no trading.

4. Members of a team shall maintain their roles (explained below) within the group on each
assignment. These roles should be rotated among the group member for each assignment.

5. There are three tasks/roles (other than solving the pro
blems in the assignment) that each
team’s members must perform. These roles are:

1.
Facilitator

-

This person serves as the group leader and will keep order in the group,
move things along, keep the group’s focus on the assignment at hand, etc.

2.
Recorde
r

-

This person serves to record the solution, in the format that is required,
for the group.

3.
Proofer

-

This person checks the final solution to be handed in, looking for careless
mistakes and proper format. Neatness and organization on homeworks are
important to
avoid lost points for sloppiness.

6. Active participation in the group’s discussion, as well as dedicated performance of the duties
of each role is critical to your grade and your learning. Remember that 45% of your grade
depends in part on
your group performance, and other members of your team are counting on
you to do your job!

7. If any team member does not show up at the scheduled time(s) for working homework
problems, or does not participate, he/she should not receive any credit for that

particular
assignment. The other team members should leave his/her name off of the cover sheet.

8. If any member does not show up or participate for more than three assignments, the
remaining team members may elect to have him/her kicked off the team. T
hat person then
must complete and turn in all remaining assignments as a one
-
person team.
