CE1262 STRENGTH OF MATERIALS 3 1 0 100
(Common to Mechanical, Production, Mechatronics, Automobile and Metallurgy)

OBJECTIVES
• To gain knowledge of simple stresses, strains and deformation in components due to external loads.
• To assess stresses and deformations through mathematical models of beams, twisting bars or combinations of both.
• Effect of component dimensions and shape on stresses and deformations are to be understood.
• The study would provide knowledge for use in the
design courses
