ENGN 36 Engineering Mechanics - Statics (3)
Credit, Degree Applicable
A first course in engineering mechanics: properties of forces, moments, couples and resultants; two- and three-dimensional force systems acting on engineering structures in equilibrium; analysis of trusses, and beams; distributed forces, shear and bending moment diagrams, center of gravity, centroids, friction, and area and mass moments of inertia.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Formulate solutions to engineering Statics problems and to effectively communicate legible problem solutions.
- Outcome 2: Determine the forces that act on rigid bodies, including external forces, weight, distributed loads, friction, and reactions at supports.
- Outcome 3: Calculate internal forces in members and create shear and bending moment diagrams for beams.
- Outcome 4: Perform vector analysis methods addressing forces acting on rigid bodies, trusses, frames, and machines.
- Outcome 5: Analyze two- and three-dimensional force systems on rigid bodies in static equilibrium.
