Statics is a branch of mechanics which studies the effects and distribution of forces of

rigid bodies which are and remain at rest. In this area of mechanics, the body in which

forces are acting is assumed to be rigid. The deformation of non-rigid bodies is treated

in Strength of Materials.

Topics in Statics:

Analysis of Trusses

Cables

Friction

Moments of Inertia

Forces acting at some angle from the the coordinate axes can be resolved into mutually

perpendicular forces called components. The component of a force parallel to the x-axis

is called the x-component, parallel to y-axis the y-component, and so on.

Resultant of

Concurrent Force

System

Resultant of a force system is a force or a couple that will have the same effect to the

body, both in translation and rotation, if all the forces are removed and replaced by the

resultant.

Note that according to the type of force system, one or two or three of the equations

above will be used in finding the resultant.

The line of action of each forces in coplanar concurrent force system are on the same

plane. All of these forces meet at a common point, thus concurrent. In x-y plane, the

resultant can be found by the following formulas:

Parallel forces can be in the same or in opposite

directions. The sign of the direction can be chosen

arbitrarily, meaning, taking one direction as

positive makes the opposite direction negative.

The complete definition of the resultant is

according to its magnitude, direction, and line of

action.

The resultant of a distributed load is equal to the area of the load diagram. It is acting

at the centroid of that area as indicated. The figure below shows the three common

distributed loads namely; rectangular load, triangular load, and trapezoidal load.

The body is said to be in equilibrium if the resultant of all forces acting on it is zero.

There are two major types of static equilibrium, namely, translational equilibrium and

rotational equilibrium.
