CE6402 STRENGTH OF MATERIALS SYLLABUS
4TH SEMESTER CIVIL SYLLABUS
REGULATION 2013
OBJECTIVES:
• To know the method of finding slope and deflection of beams and trusses using energy theorems and to know the concept of analysing indeterminate beam
• To estimate the load carrying capacity of columns, stresses due to unsymmetrical bending and various theories for failure of material.
UNIT I ENERGY PRINCIPLES
Strain energy and strain energy density – strain energy due to axial load, shear, flexure and torsion – Castigliano‟s theorems – Maxwell‟s reciprocal theorems - Principle of virtual work – application of energy theorems for computing deflections in beams and trusses - Williot Mohr's Diagram.

UNIT II INDETERMINATE BEAMS
Concept of Analysis - Propped cantilever and fixed beams-fixed end moments and reactions – Theorem of three moments – analysis of continuous beams – shear force and bending moment diagrams.

UNIT III COLUMNS AND CYLINDER
Euler‟s theory of long columns – critical loads for prismatic columns with different end conditions; Rankine-Gordon formula for eccentrically loaded columns – Eccentrically loaded short columns – middle third rule – core section – Thick cylinders – Compound cylinders.

UNIT IV STATE OF STRESS IN THREE DIMENSIONS
Determination of principal stresses and principal planes – Volumetric strain –Theories of failure – Principal stress - Principal strain – shear stress – Strain energy and distortion energy theories – application in analysis of stress, load carrying capacity.

UNIT V ADVANCED TOPICS IN BENDING OF BEAMS
Unsymmetrical bending of beams of symmetrical and unsymmetrical sections – Shear Centre - curved beams – Winkler Bach formula.

TOTAL (L:45+T:15): 60 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
• students will have through knowledge in analysis of indeterminate beams and use of energy method for estimating the slope and deflections of beams and trusses.
• They will be in a position to assess the behaviour of columns, beams and failure of materials.
