Statics and Mechanics of Materials for PE



A combined course of Statics and Strength of Materials for petroleum engineering. Forces, force couples, resultants, free body diagrams, equations of equilibrium and internal/external forces are first covered in statics and then applied to problems of stress analysis and deformations in deformable bodies under axial, torsional, bending and combined loading in the mechanics of materials part. Stress tensor is introduced and the significance of elastic parameters is highlighted. Stress transformation equations, experimental methods of measuring rock strength, and failure criteria are also discussed.
