Course Title: STATICS AND MECHANICS OF MATERIALS 1
First of a two-course sequence covering statics and strength of materials. Topics covered include: concurrent force systems, equilibrium, axial loading, stress, strain, deformation, moments, equivalent systems, centroids, centers of mass and distributed loads, free-body diagrams, equilibrium of rigid and deformable bodies, plane trusses, frames and machines, equilibrium in 3D, and torsion and friction. Computers are used for problem solving.
Prerequisite: ENGR 0012 and PHYS 0202
