ENGR 14: Intro to Solid Mechanics
Introduction to engineering analysis using the principles of engineering solid mechanics. Builds on the math and physical reasoning concepts in
Physics 41 to develop skills in evaluation of engineered systems across a variety of fields. Foundational ideas for more advanced solid mechanics courses such as ME80 or
CEE101A. Interactive lecture sessions focused on mathematical application of key concepts, with weekly complementary lab session on testing and designing systems that embody these concepts. Limited enrollment, subject to instructor approval. Prerequisite:
Physics 41.

ME 309: Finite Element Analysis in Mechanical Design
Basic concepts of finite elements, with applications to problems confronted by mechanical designers. Linear static, modal, and thermal formulations emphasized; nonlinear and dynamic formulations introduced. Application of a commercial finite element code in analyzing design problems. Issues: solution methods, modeling techniques, features of various commercial codes, basic problem definition. Individual projects focus on the interplay of analysis and testing in product design/development. Prerequisites:
Math 51, or equivalent. Recommended: ME80 or
CEE101A, or equivalent in structural and/or solid mechanics; some exposure to principles of heat transfer.
