- VI. Catalog Course Description
- This course provides a non-calculus analysis of Newton’s first law from an applications standpoint as it pertains to particles and rigid bodies. It utilizes algebra and trigonometry for application to problems involving force systems, equilibrium, and structures.
- VII. Required Course Content and Direction
Course Learning Goals
- evaluate the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of applied engineering statics;
- analyze concurrent forces, the statics of particles, and equivalent force/moment systems of rigid bodies;
- evaluate centroids and center of gravity; 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 and non-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
- conservative and non-conservative force analysis
Assessment Methods for Course Learning GoalsThe evaluative tools may include any or all of the following as specified by the individual instructor's syllabus: objective examinations, research reports, laboratory reports, online activities and discussion, quizzes, projects, and papers.
