AMMET 318 - Applied Statics and Mechanics of Materials



5.0 Credits
Study of forces acting on structures at rest: free body diagrams (FBDs), trusses, and friction. Analysis of tension, compression, shear, deformation, and stress acting on members. Includes both external and internal forces. Students will use mechanical test equipment to verify their calculations.
Prerequisite AMMET 302.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Explain the physical meaning of force and momentum equilibrium.
  2. Draw a correct and complete FBD of forces and moments for a structure.
  3. Evaluate trusses using method of joints and method of sections.
  4. Explain the concept of friction and apply it to structural analysis.
  5. Select, combine, and apply tools to analyze tension, compression, shear, deformation, torsion, and stress of members.
  6. Use materials testing procedures and equipment to measure mechanical properties.
