WE2084 Mechanic/Statics

January 30, 2022

Mechanics is the study of forces acting on objects (statics and dynamics). This course focuses on statics, the study of objects in equilibrium. Applied mechanics deals with the basic concepts of forces and is the origin for all calculations in areas such as stress analysis, structural design and weldment design. This course begins with a review of basic trigonometry, laws of triangles and unit conversion. Major topics include introduction to forces and moments, forces acting on truss and frame members, friction, centroids, moments of inertia, and radius of gyration. Both SI and Imperial System units are used.
