Synopsis:

The principal objective of the course is to familiarize students with basic principles of mechanics such as equilibrium and equivalency applied to statically determined structures

1. Concurrent forces - definition of force, basic theorems and axioms, equilibrium, equivalency

2. Concurrent forces - resultants by rectangular components

3. Statics of particles - free-body diagrams, equilibrium of rigid particles

4. General system of forces - resultant forces and resultant moments, cross product, scalar product

5. General system of forces - resolution of forces to a force and a couple

6. Parallel system of forces in two and three dimensions

7. Statics of rigid bodies - idealization of two and three-dimensional supports and connections

8. Statics of rigid bodies - equilibrium in two and three dimensions

9. Statics of rigid bodies - reaction forces of simple and compound statically determined structures

10. Statics of rigid bodies - reaction forces applying principle of virtual displacements and rotations

11. Analysis of trusses - definition, classification, zero force members

12. Analysis of trusses - application of the method of joints

13. Analysis of trusses - application of the method of sections
