Course Objective and Content

Course Objectives: The goal of this course is to develop the ability in students to evaluate fundamental engineering problems in a simple manner by creating free body diagrams and to calculate internal forces and support reactions of basic structural members by utilizing equilibrium principles under static loading conditions, as well as equilibrium equations based on these principles.
Course Content: The course covers the following topics; Definition and classification of mechanics. Principles of statics. System of planar forces, constraints of planar bodies and computation of constraint.Plane trusses. Cables. Space system of forces. Central axis. A static equilibrium. Constraints in space. Spatial trusses.
