ENGR 211 - Statics

4 Credit(s)

Principles of statics of particles and rigid bodies are studied with a vectorial approach. Particular attention will be given to the composition, resolution and equilibrium of coplanar and non-coplanar force systems; two dimensional trusses and frames; centroids and moments of inertia of plane areas; coulombic friction; and the distribution of shear and bending moments in simple beams.   

Prerequisite: MTH 252  and PH 211  completed with a grade of C- or better within the past eight terms
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

1. Apply vector algebra to compute the resultants of coplanar force systems

2. Draw correct Free Body Diagrams and write the corresponding equations of equilibrium

3. Solve equilibrium equations for unknown force components

4. Determine forces acting in simple trusses, frames, and machines

5. Locate centroids of areas

6. Construct axial force, shear, and bending moment diagrams for statically determinant beams under various loading conditions

7. Solve problems involving coulomb friction
