Course Synopsis

This course is designed for a semester in Fortran Programming language for undergraduate Computer Science, Mathematical Science and Engineering students. The course covers general concepts and introduction to Fortran Programming with Fortran 03 (or Fortran 2003). Fortran 03 contains all of the features of the later version Fortran 77/95 needed to write complete and workable Fortran programs. Even though the course may not, in to full details, give everything the students need, it covers the basic features needed to be a good Fortran programmer and an introduction to the important new features of Fortran 03. This course has found profound and significant applications in Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and other related fields.

CVE 202
Strength of Materials I
CVE 202 | MNE | 2nd Semester |

Course Synopsis

The strength of a material, whatever is its nature, is defined largely by the internal stresses, or intensities of force in the material to carry external loads. Knowledge of these stresses is essential to the safe design of a machine or any type of structure, which in some cases may consist of complex arrangements of many component members. This course is concerned with the study of structural and machine members under the action of external loads. Analysis is directed towards the determination of the limiting loads the member can withstand before failure of the material or excessive deformation occurs. It is a practical course designed and made compulsory for all engineering students to impart and equip them with useful skills to analyse structures which they will encounter later in life. Topics to be covered include Force equilibrium, Free body diagrams, Elasticity – concept of stress and strain, tensile tests, young’ module and other strength factors, axially loaded bars, temperature stresses and simple indeterminate problems, hoop stresses; stresses in cylinders and rings, bending moment, shear force and axial force diagrams.
