Statics And Mechanics
Introduces students to the basics of statics. Learners study and analyze forces and loading conditions applied to structures and mechanical devices. Areas of study include resultant and equilibrant of forces, moments, nonconcurrent-coplanar forces (trusses), concurrent-noncoplanar forces and static friction. Related engineering analysis software will be utilized throughout the course. Prerequisite: 10-804-114. Corequisite: 10-804-116.
