ENGR 1080 - Statics Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This course examines rigid body mechanics where bodies are in equilibrium. Topics include force and moment vectors, principles of statics, and equilibrium analysis. In addition, the course covers static analysis of simple trusses, frames, and machines. Also distributed loads, centroids, moments of inertia, and principles of friction will be presented. Design of simple structures in equilibrium is integrated throughout the course.
Prerequisite(s): PHYS 1081 and concurrent enrollment in MATH 1082 .
