Courses

ME 354 (Mechanics of Materials) – Winter 2019, Autumn 2019, Autumn 2020

This combined lecture+laboratory course on the mechanics of materials aims to give students a theoretical and practical understanding of topics including strength, plasticity, beam bending, buckling, fracture, and fatigue. Special attention is paid to the mechanisms that govern material properties.

ME 450 (Composite Materials and Design) – Winter 2020

This intro-level course investigates the origins of the strength, stiffness and toughness of composite materials including long fiber, short fiber and particulate composites of different compositions and at different length scales. Special attention is paid to laminated composites and their anisotropic stiffness and failure behaviors.
