This module provides engineering students the fundamental knowledge needed to understand the concept of mechanics on structures of a given material. Using this module, engineering students should be able to develop an understanding on the strength of a material/structure, analyse the given problem and demonstrates solution in a logical approach using the basic and principles as presented in this module. This module was designed to be the first part of the course for strength of materials (or also known as mechanics of materials in some other institutions) in which a few chapters has been included, here. It is hoped that this module could make it easier for the students to understand the subject.
Chapter 1: Introduction to Strength of Materials
Chapter 2: Stress Strain Under Axial Loading
Chapter 3: Torsion
Chapter 4: Pure Bending
Chapter 5: Design and Analysis of Beam
