Description

This course features an online version of the textbook for the course (Engineering Mechanics for Structures, written by Professor Louis L. Bucciarelli) in the readings section. This course also has virtually all of its materials online, including real tools and data, interactive exercises, and design exercises in the assignments section.1.050 is a sophomore-level engineering mechanics course, commonly labelled "Statics and Strength of Materials" or "Solid Mechanics I." This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and methods of structural mechanics. Topics covered include: static equilibrium, force resultants, support conditions, analysis of determinate planar structures (beams, trusses, frames), stresses and strains in structural elements, states of stress (shear, bending, torsion), statically indeterminate systems, displacements and deformations, introduction to matrix methods, elastic stability, and approximate methods. Design exercises are used to encourage creative student initiative and systems thinking.
