Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]  Describe and apply the basic concepts and fundamental principles of engineering mechanics (statics).

[2]  Analyze and solve equilibrium problems of particle and rigid body.

[3]  Work as an effective member of a team to solve engineering mechanics (statics) problems.


The engineering mechanics of statics provides an introduction and the basic concept of statics as physical sciences, system of units, scalars and vectors, Free Body Diagram, forces system, force system resultants and moment, equilibrium of a particle, equilibrium of a rigid body, structural analysis (trusses analysis and simple frames and machines), friction and center of gravity and centroid.
