# 13ME42 - STRENGTH OF MATERIALS

ASSESSMENT : THEORY
COURSE OBJECTIVES
The course is designed to understand the basic concepts of stress, strain and its
variations for different loading pattern. Mechanical properties such as elastic modulus, bulk
modulus, modulus of rigidity and Poisson's ratio, along with their behaviour in combined stress
and strain, principal stress, principal plane, bending moment and shear force in beam under
various loading conditions are studied. Understanding of torsional shear stress in solid and
hollow shaft; principal and maximum shear stress in a circular shaft subjected to combined
stresses, stresses in struts and columns subjected to axial load; bending stress, slope and
