Engineering Mechanics I

CRN: 84887

Term: 1 (3 lecture & 3 practicum hours)

Time: Thursday, 9:00 am - 11:50 am

Professor: TBA

Prerequisites or Corequisites:

MATH 123.

Description:

Introduction to statics. This course provides a basic introduction to forces as vectors, force equilibrium of particles, and force and moment equilibrium of rigid bodies. Problems involving friction and the analyses of simple trusses, frames and machines are also introduced. A series of problem laboratories and practical laboratories are designed to help the student apply the principles of statics to practical problems.

Engineering Mechanics II

        CRN: 25240

Term: 2 (3 lecture & 3 practicum hours)

             Time: Friday, 9:00 am - 11:50 am

Professor: Glyn Kennel

Prerequisite(s) and Corequisite(s):

GE 124 and MATH 123. Registered in MATH 124.

Description:

A continuation of Engineering Mechanics I. The equilibrium of bodies under distributed loads is presented as an introduction to centroids, centers of mass, and area moments of interia. Particle dynamics is the subject of the majority of the course starting with the principles of particle translation under constant and non-constant acceleration. The kinetics of particles during translation, including force-acceleration, work-energy, and impulse-momentum are also applied to practical engineering applications. A series of problem laboratories and practical laboratories provide practical problems to assist in the assimilartion of the principles covered.
