Description

A. Course Description:

This course treats only rigid-body mechanics and forms a suitable basis for the design and analysis of many types of structural, mechanical, or electrical devices encountered in engineering. As the course name suggests, this course deals with the equilibrium of bodies that are either at rest or move with constant velocity. Therefore, this Statics course provides the students with the principles that treats the statics of particles and rigid bodies, trusses, frames, machines; centroids, centers of gravity; and friction.

B. Course Objectives:

1. Identify constraint forces in a physical system.

2. Draw a Free-Body Diagram.

3. Compute moments due to a force and moment arm.

4. Compute equivalent force/couple systems.
