Section Description

The basic principles and application of rigid-body mechanics to the statics of particles are studied in this course. Two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) forces acting on rigid bodies, moments, vector operations, equilibrium of a particle and equilibrium of a rigid body in 2D and 3D and free body diagrams are studied. Structural analysis including simple trusses, frames, cables and introduction to shear and bending-moment diagrams are included. Frictional forces, wedges, screws, flat belts and the concept of center of gravity and centroid, moment of inertia and radius of gyration are also studied. It is expected that the students will develop critical thinking skills to successfully formulate solutions for the statics problems.
