Course Profile
Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

1.  Demonstrate knowledge of the basic principles of engineering mechanics for systems in equilibrium.
2.  Acquire an understanding of force systems in both two and three dimensional space.
3.  Determine appropriate free body diagrams for whole or parts of structures.
4.  Apply the equations of equilibrium (sum of forces equal zero, sum of moments equal zero) to both two and three dimensional systems.
5.  Apply the equations of equilibrium to trusses, frames and machines.
6.  Demonstrate an understanding of the laws of Coulomb friction.
7.  Locate the centroids of two and three dimensional bodies.
8.  Determine area and mass moments of inertia.
