ES 2110 - Statics
This course covers vector statics of particles and rigid bodies, including equilibrium in two and three dimensions, center of gravity, centroids, distributed loads, truss analysis, simple structures and machines, friction, and internal actions.
Instructional Method Lecture
MATH 2200 - Calculus I with a grade of C or better
Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of ES 2110 Statics, the student will:
- Demonstrate methodical approach to problem solving.
- Present problems and solutions in a professional manner.
- Discuss abstraction of relevant free body diagrams of real world problems.
- Use equations of equilibrium, force and moments, to solve problems involving concurrent forces and rigid bodies.
- Apply vector analysis to solve engineering abstractions.
- Analyze systems of forces and moments for real world problems.
- Analyze frames and machines of connected members to determine internal forces and couples of the members.
- Calculate friction forces, differentiate between static and kinetic friction and apply these concepts to problems involving wedges, threads and other applications.
- Demonstrate techniques for employing modern computational devices for solving problems.
