ENGR& 214 - Statics

5.0 Credits
Newton’s laws of motion applied to structures at rest and with no acceleration. Topics covered are vectors, forces, moments, equilibrium, 3D structures, trusses, frames, machines, friction, moment of inertia. Prerequisite: PHYS& 221 with a grade of 2.0 or higher.

Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Solve two and three-dimensional equilibrium problems by summing vector forces and moments. [REASON]
  2. Solve for forces in structures using the methods of joints and sections. [REASON]
  3. Calculate centroids and moments of inertia for two-dimensional shapes. [REASON]
  4. Collaborate with team members to design, estimate, and evaluate forces in members and frames. [REASON]
