Credit Hours: 3

A study of the behavior of non-rigid bodies when subjected to external tension, compression, bending, torsional loads, or a combination of these loads. Development of mathematical expressions that relate external loads, member properties, and internal stresses, strains, and deflections. Includes elastic and plastic stress theory, energy methods, generalized stress and strain relationships, and buckling theory.  The delivery platform used in this course for cadets placed in isolation/quarantine during VMI Summer Session will be Zoom.
