 Strength of Materials encompasses all of the issues and programs and is an essential way of approaching building projects. Understanding Strength of Materials concepts will enable students to think and practice in integrated fashion to meet the demands of nowadays as well as tomorrow\'s high-performance building project.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
- Introduce students to the basics of strength of Materials and designing elements;
- Give students fundamental knowledge about the concept of stress and strain;
- Provide information and methods of designing stressed elements;
- Develop and demonstrate abilities to solve simple problems of strength of Materials, Axially stressed members and bending moments;
- Students will be able to understand normal and shear stresses and combined stress, as well as the basic approach to design of beams and determination of the deflections.
- It is expected from students to develop critical thinking skills necessary to formulate appropriate approaches to problem solutions.
- Students will be also able to understand type of loads and their application to the load-bearing elements as well as their determination.
