Title:Student symposium on engineering mechanics 24th

Subject(s):Engineering Mechanics
Abstract:Undergraduates in the Engineering Mechanics curriculum at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign currently take a two-semester course entitled "Research and Design Project" during the senior year of study. In the first semester (TAM 293), each student formulates a suitable mechanics project in consultation with a UIUC faculty member; wide latitude is allowed in selecting a project, as long as it involves aspects of both research and design. In the second semester (TAM 294), the students carry out their projects with guidance from their faculty advisers, and prepare final written reports. Authors of outstanding reports are invited to present their findings at an annual Student Symposium, which is attended by both faculty and students (see "An Invitation", page ii). The seven papers in this volume were selected from the eighteen reports generated by the students in TAM 294, Spring Semester, 1987 and presented in May 1987.
