Course Objectives
To teach the following concepts to students
• Statics of particles and rigid bodies
• Forces, force components, moments, and equilibrium
• Shear and moment diagrams
• Moments of inertia
• Friction
Course Description
As a branch of mechanics, Statics explore equilibrium of rigid bodies, which are at rest (i.e. no acceleration), subjected to action of forces. This course is fundamental to other mechanics courses those involve with deformable bodies and fluids. Sections on the statics of particles and rigid bodies; moment, static equilibrium, shear and moment diagrams as well as moments of inertia establish the grounds for the better understanding of the principles of the structural design and analysis.
Course Outcomes
1) Understanding the basic concepts of force, couples and moments in two and three dimensions.
2) Assessing the equilibrium of a particle and rigid bodies.
3) Drawing bending moment and shear force diagrams on structural components.
4) Calculating the centre of gravity and moments of inertia.
5) Analysing the effect of friction.
