CE221 ENGINEERING MECHANICS I.
Civil engineering (like many others) is based on mechanics. Various branches of mechanics are treated in three or four basic courses in the civil engineering curriculum. The major objectives of this course are: 1) To establish the concept of equilibrium , 2) To introduce the concept of structural analysis with reference to statically determinate trusses and beams, 3) To introduce properties of surfaces used in mechanics.
Introduction to rigid body mechanics. Equivalent force systems: Concepts of moment, couple, resultant. Equilibrium: Free-body diagram; equations of equilibrium. Structural analysis: Trusses; beams. Shear force and bending moment diagrams by method of sections and by method of integration. Properties of surfaces: Area moment and centroid; moments and product of inertia; principal directions.
An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems, an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice, and an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
