Continuing on the engineering path of courses that Georgia Tech offers through MOOCs, Mechanics of Materials 1: Fundamentals of Stress & Strain and Axial Loading expands on subjects covered in Introduction to Engineering Mechanics and in Applications in Engineering Mechanics courses. Understanding what causes stress and strain on solid objects will help you problem solve and plan according to design-stable structures.
The methods taught in the course are used to predict the response of engineering structures to various types of loading, and to analyze the vulnerability of these structures to various failure modes. Axial loading will be the focus in this course. You will need to have successfully completed Introduction to Engineering Mechanics and Applications in Engineering Mechanics Coursera courses in order to be successful in this course.View Course Page
