- Use failure theories to determine factors of safety for complex stress states.
- Use Castigliano's theorem to calculate deflections in complex bar structures.
- Calculate shear flow in thin-wall structures.
- Determine the linear stress-strain relations of a fiber-reinforced material.
- ME 520 only - Demonstrate the ability to independently analyze and extend a given course subject and synthesize the results into a cohesive research paper.
