Engineering Mechanics I

Course contents
  • Statics:

    - Basic concepts (rigid body, force, cutting principle, reaction forces, equilibrium)
    - Central level system of forces (net force, equilibrant force, storage conditions)
    - General level system of forces (net force, momentum, torque, dislocation momentum, bonds, degree of freedom and determinacy of a kinematically rigid panel)
    - Level supporting structures and frameworks (storage of kinematically rigid panels, distributed loads)
    - Stress resultants in level beams and carrier current systems of transmission
    - Centre of gravity (centre of mass, centre of volume, centre of area, centre of line)
    - Adhesive force and dynamic friction (cord adhesion and friction)
