ENG 220 Statics

This course is a detailed study of forces, moments, couples, resultants of force systems and equilibrium analysis of rigid bodies utilizing freebody diagrams. Topics include analysis of forces acting on members, introduction and development of shear-force and bending moment diagrams. Coulomb friction, centriods, center of mass, moment of inertia, polar moment of inertia, product of inertia, virtual work and hydrostatic pressure are also included. Applications to engineering structures and mechanical systems are strongly emphasized. 11 (3 lecture hours) IAI: EGR 913
