Course Description

Introduction. Principles of statics, force vector, equilibrium of particle, moment of a couple, equilibrium of rigid body, planar forces, center of gravity, PappusGuldinus theorems, distributed loads and hydrostatic forces, supports and support reactions, beams, frames, simple machines, trusses, cables, friction, virtual work.

Course Objectives

1. To provide students with knowledge and skills required for applying fundamentals of vector analysis of force and moment systems to statics of simple structures.
2. To prepare students towards engineering problems in fundamental structural analysis.

Course Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete the course will acquire the fundamental knowledge listed below as a basis for further studies in structural analysis and they will be capable of using such knowledge to obtain solutions to basic problems of structural analysis.
 Definition of force and moment vectors and required vector algebra.
 Equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies in 2D and 3D space.
 Static equilibrium of structures, supports and support reactions.
 External and internal forces (trusses, beams, frames, cables, machines)

Instructional Methods and Techniques

Projection, PowerPoint, instruction by writing and drawing on the board.
