Prerequisites: ENGT 1000, MATH 1112, MATH 1113

3 Credits

This course introduces the student to the study of forces acting on objects and their effects on a body at rest or at constant velocity. Static principles are applied in analyzing structural systems. Topics include: vectors, resultants, equilibrium of force systems, free body diagrams (FBD), analysis of trusses and frames, distributed loading and geometric properties of areas. Emphasis is placed on bodies at rest in both 2 dimensions and 3 dimensions.
