EGR-219L - Lab: Mechanics of Materials1 credits
This course is the laboratory component of EGR 219. Established material testing techniques that provide physical observations to complement and reinforce concepts learned in EGR 219. Data collection, measurement, and experimental techniques to determine mechanical properties and stresses, strains, and deformations for various materials used in civil engineering. Introduction to computer modeling of structural members. Topics include mechanical properties of metals and concrete; concrete constitutent testing and mix design; concrete casting and hardened concrete testing; beam and column behavior; and analysis of structural members using modeling software.
