ENGR& 214 - Statics
MATH& 152 or PHYS& 221 with a grade of “C” or better (or concurrent enrollment in either of the courses with advisor approval).
This is a course in engineering statics (mechanics). Topics include: vector notation, scalar and vector analysis of two- and three-dimensional static structures, equilibrium, moments, couples, distributed loads, resultants, centroids, inertia, shear and bending moments, and friction.
5 theory hours.
AA Specified Elective
Satisfies the requirement for the AS-Track 2 degree or specified elective for the AA degree.
- Solve two- and three-dimensional equilibrium problems by summing vector forces and moments
- Construct free-body diagrams to calculate forces between bodies, within members and at connections
- Use graphical and analytical techniques to determine reactions to structural loading
- Make use of equivalent systems such as couples, force-couple relationships, and resultants in the calculation of structure loads
- Calculate the section forces in beams, including shear force, axial force, and bending moments
- Calculate centroids and moments of inertia of plane surfaces
- Use alternate frames of reference in the calculation of distributed loads
- Account for friction in the determination of structure loading
- Model real-world problems using engineering mechanics
- Develop and utilize team skills necessary in the solution of engineering problems
- Report the results of analyses clearly, concisely, and in the required format
