Course: CVEN 3161 - Mechanics of Materials, and CVEN 4161/5161 – Mechanics of Materials II
Participants: Undergraduate and graduate students, Prof. Yunping Xi and Prof. Mija Hubler
Summary: CIEST assists Mechanics of Materials I and II in their practical labs. various metal and concrete samples are tested under various loading scenarios as groups of students observe. This gives students a real-world connection to their studies.
