**TITLE**: Applied Strength of Materials

**TEXT**: Statics and Strength of Materials, 2^{nd}
Edition, by Fa-Hwa Cheng

Optional Supplement: Elementary Statics and Strength of Materials by John Jackson and Harold Wirtz, Schaum’s Outline

**INSTRUCTOR**: Professor
Jack Zecher: ET301C / Office Phone:
274-4539 (jzecher@iupui.edu)

**PREREQUISITES**: MET 111 – Applied Statics

**GOALS & OBJECTIVES:**

·
To apply the principles of statics to determine the
forces acting on load carrying members.

·
To analyze the stresses in load carrying members due to
direct axial tensile and compressive
forces, bearing forces, torsional moments, bending moments, and shear forces.

·
To determine the deflection of load carrying members due
to axial loads, torsional moments, and bending moments.

·
To analyze the combined stressed due to axial forces,
bending moments, and torsional moments acting together.

·
To apply the principles of strength of materials to
design load carrying members of machines and structures to insure safety and
adherence to performance standards.

**GRADING:** 3 Exams @ 100 pts
each =
300 pts

Final Exam = 150 pts

4 Quizzes @ 25 pts each = 100 pts

10 out of 12 homework problems @ 5 pts each = 50 pts

8
lab projects @ 100 pts each, ´ 25% =__
200 pts__

Total possible points = 800 pts

**EXAMS:** Will be 75 minutes long, problem
solving tests (similar to homework problems). The final exam will be 120
minutes in length. They will be closed book
and closed notes. A formula sheet will
be provided. A copy of the formula
sheet will be posted in the course bulletin board prior to the exam.

**HOMEWORK:** Problems will be assigned at the end of nearly
every lecture. Solutions to these
problems must be done on green engineering graph paper using the format of
problems displayed on the course bulletin board. Twelve times throughout the semester a problem will be randomly
selected to be turned in for a grade at the beginning of class. Late homework will not be collected. Problems must be neatly written and show all
work leading up to the final answer.
The two lowest homework grades will be dropped. Solutions to most homework problems not
discussed in class will be placed in the course bulletin board.

**ATTENDANCE**: Students are
expected to be present for every meeting of every class in which they are
enrolled because learning is enhanced through active discussion, demonstration
and practice of the topics being studied.
You are responsible for all completed work, schedule adjustments and assigned work addressed during
class. Please inform your instructor if
you are unable to attend any scheduled class session, and obtain notes from a
fellow student for any missed lecture/lab.
It is your responsibility to make arrangements for any planned or
unplanned absences (i.e. interviews, illnesses, personal emergencies,
etc.)

**CLASS PROTOCOL: **The department expects all students to follow the
established standards of academic integrity in its courses. Cheating or plagiarism will not be
tolerated, and will result in an ** F** for the course, expulsion from
the class, and possible university discipline.

No derogatory
comments about or towards any member of the class will be tolerated in any
class or lab session. Please refrain
from the use of cell phones or beepers during class.

**KEYS TO SUCCESS: .**Homework: make sure that you understand how to solve
each homework problem by yourself (without help from someone else). You may need to go back and rework some of
the problems that you were unable to solve, after they are presented in class
or posted on the bulletin board.

.Study Skills: Stay current /
Keep a course notebook / study by yourself and in a group

.Review Prerequisite
skills: Statics / Math (Algebra & Calculus)

.Prepare for each
class: Work (or try to work) each homework problem / read the material
(including any sample problem) that is scheduled to be covered during the
lecture before coming to class / plan to spend 2-3hrs. outside of class for
every hour of lecture
