VI. Catalog Course Description
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
  1. Learning Goals:

    1. Course
    2. Students will:
      1. evaluate the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of engineering statics;
      2. analyze concurrent forces, the statics of particles, and equivalent force/moment systems of rigid bodies;
      3. evaluate centroids and center of gravity, second moments of area, and moments of inertia;
      4. analyze friction and internal forces; and
      5. apply the theory learned to the analysis of trusses, frames, and machines.
