Mechanics of Materials

Mechanics of materials studies solid material behavior under stress and strain. It uses principles of physics and materials science to determine the strength and elasticity of materials and structures. Critical concepts in mechanics of materials include Hooke’s law for linear elastic behavior, stress-strain relationships, bending and shear stresses, and failure criteria. Understanding mechanics of materials allows engineers to design structures and components that are safe, durable, and cost-effective under expected loading conditions. Key topics include:
