**Homework:** Homework will normally be assigned each
Monday and due the following Monday in class. Late homework
will not be accepted. You are allowed to discuss the homework
problems with peers, but you must write up your own homework to hand
in. Please submit homework assignments in a neat and presentable
manner with all calculations shown. Submission of homework on engineering
pad paper is required. Homework will be graded on a scale of 100.
Please abide by the University of Michigan Honor Code - it will be
strictly enforced, including on homework.
**Grading:** Homework 30%, midterms 40%, final 30%. These
weights are approximate; the right to change them later is reserved.

**Prerequisites:**

- CEE211 - Statics and Dynamics (strictly enforced)

**Catalog description:** Fundamental principles of solid and structural mechanics will
be presented. Application of the principles to civil engineering structures will be
emphasized. The course will further develop the concepts introduced in Statics and Dynamics
(CEE211). In particular, the notion of internal forces, and the concepts of stress and strain
will be introduced. Mechanical properties of solids will be discussed, and the notion of statical
indeterminacy will be introduced. The methods of structural analysis will be presented, including
those based on energy concepts.
