Lab problems are designed to parallel classroom studies and to develop proficiency in the analytical solution of mechanics problems. Some physical testing and related analysis are also conducted, which may include one or more of the following: metal tension tests, bolted connections, beams, and columns. As a result of completing the labs, the student performs the numerical analyses related to course outcomes and course content, performs laboratory testing related to selected topics in the course content, and analyzes experimental data and relates it to course content.
