ENGR& 214 - Statics

5 credits

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.

Theory Hours
5 theory hours.

AA Specified Elective
Satisfies the requirement for the AS-Track 2 degree or specified elective for the AA degree.

Course Outcomes
  • 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
