MECH3599 - Engineering Mechanics
This course covers static equilibrium and dynamic motion. Major components of this course are force vectors, equilibrium of a particle, resultant and internal forces, centroids, center of gravity, stress and strain, torsion, moments of inertia, shearing, deflection, kinematics of a particle, kinetics of a particle, force, acceleration, work and energy, impulse and momentum. The course includes labs that correspond to the lecture material. Prerequisites: MATH2050, Multivariable Calculus, and PHYS1750, Engineering Physics II.
By the end of the course the students will be able to:
Use Cartesian vector form and free body diagrams
Perform basic functions with vectors
Solve resultant force vector problems
Calculate and use the centroid in a system
Analyze motion around a fixed or rotating frame of reference
Solve problems involving particles and planar motion
(1) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
