Course Objective

This course is designed to give the basic concepts and principles of rigid body statics(such as equivalent force systems, free-body diagrams and equilibrium equations) and their applications to two- and three-dimensional engineering structures.

Course Content

Principles of mechanics. Elements of statics in two and three dimensions, centroids, analysis of structures and machines, friction. Internal force diagrams. Moment of inertia.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, the student is expected to develope the ability to analyze a rigid body statics problem in a simple and logical manner and obtain its solution by applying the few well understood basic concepts and principles of statics.
