Course Number & Name: ENR 211 Engineering Mechanics I – Statics
Credit Hours: 3.0 Contact Hours: 3.0 Lecture: 3.0 Lab: N/A Other: N/A
Course Description: This is a course in calculus-based statics. Topics covered include elementary vector algebra, scalar and vector products as applied to two and three-dimensional force systems, equilibrium, friction, second moments, and virtual work. Extensive use is made of the free body diagram approach and vector analysis.
<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- analyze force vectors by using appropriate coordinate systems and units;
- draw free body diagrams and develop equilibrium equations to solve mechanics problems; and
- apply the concepts and principles of rigid-body mechanics including structure analysis, internal forces, and frictions to solve engineering problems.
