 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
 Requirements:

Successful completion of the assigned tasks. Successfully passing two tests.
 Syllabus of lectures:

1. Concurrent forces  definition of force, basic theorems and axioms, equilibrium, equivalency
2. Concurrent forces  resultants by rectangular components
3. Statics of particles  freebody 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 threedimensional 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
