- This course provides an overview of calculus-based engineering statics. Topics include: concurrent force systems; statics of particles; equivalent force/moment systems, distributed forces, and equilibrium of rigid bodies; trusses, frames, and machines; internal forces in structural members; friction; second moments of area, and moments of inertia.
- VII. Required Course Content and Direction
Course Learning Goals
- evaluate the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of engineering statics;
- analyze concurrent forces, the statics of particles, and equivalent force/moment systems of rigid bodies;
- evaluate centroids and center of gravity, second moments of area, and moments of inertia;
- analyze friction and internal forces; and
- apply the theory learned to the analysis of trusses, frames, and machines.
Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities
The following topics are presented:
- general principles
- concurrent force systems
- statics of particles
- rigid bodies: equivalent force/moment systems
- distributed forces: centroids and center of gravity
- equilibrium of rigid bodies
- trusses, frames, and machines
- internal forces in structural members
- second moments of area and moments of inertia
