ES 11 Statics of Rigid Bodies
COURSE SYLLABUS
st

1 Semester, AY 2014-2015
Course Description: Fundamental principles of mechanics and their applications to the simpler engineering problems
involving static equilibrium; Forces and Moments, their components and resultants, and their vector representation;
System of discrete as well as continuously distributed forces; Frames, trusses, cables, friction; First and second
moments of length, area, volume, and mass.
Course goals: After completing this course, a student must be able to
1. Appreciate the fundamental concepts related to engineering mechanics
2. Gain knowledge on geometric properties of areas and volumes
3. Understand the effects of external forces on rigid bodies in static equilibrium
4. Understand internal forces in plane trusses, beams and frames
5. Develop the ability to analyze particles and rigid bodies in static equilibrium
Prerequisites
