Course Information

Prerequisite: Engr. Mech. E3113. Selected experiments to investigate material properties, strain gages, stress concentration, impact, brittle fracture, fatigue, creep, buckling, and torsion. Lectures on the underlying theories and applications. Usually taught by Professor Meyer: "This is a lab course, but also has to plug a lot of holes, i.e. provide a lot of material that my colleagues in the prerequisite courses had no time to cover. Also here, students are complaining that the 3 credits are not commensurate with the effort they have to put into writing 8 lab reports. We are planning to introduce a new course on civil engineering materials that hopefully will take some of the pressure off this course as well."
