- Level: Second year undergraduate
This learning project is an introduction to the study of strength of materials. It discusses the simple and easy to use method for determining the stresses and strains in materials and how materials fail.
This learning project aims to teach the student how to calculate stresses and strains that materials undergo when loaded. After taking this course, a student should be able to understand the different types of stresses including normal, torsion, bending and shearing. They should also be able to solve for deflections in elastic materials, and understand how a materials yields and eventually fails under load.

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!
You should also read about the Wikiversity:Learning model. Lessons should center on leagrning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple projects - and you are encouraged to cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
