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, 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. Upon completion of CE 001 Statics, students will be able to: 1. Define Statics as a fundamental field of rigid body mechanics concerning particles and bodies in static equilibrium. 2. Identify forces and support reactions acting on particles and rigid bodies in 2-D and 3-D systems and draw accurate free body diagrams. 3. Apply Newton's Laws of Motion to solve for unknown forces and support reactions on particles and rigid bodies in 2-D and 3-D systems, i.e., trusses, frames and machines. 4. Determine the centroid, center of mass, center of gravity and area moment of inertia in complex shapes using composite shapes and integration. ABET outcome: #1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
