ENR 211 ENGINEERING MECHANICS I STATICS

ENR 211 – Engineering Mechanics I – Statics

Course Outline

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

Prerequisites:  Grades of “C” or better in MTH 121 and PHY 103

Co-requisites:  None                                                      Concurrent Courses: None

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:

  1. analyze force vectors by using appropriate coordinate systems and units;
  2. draw free body diagrams and develop equilibrium equations to solve mechanics problems; and
  3. apply the concepts and principles of rigid-body mechanics including structure analysis, internal forces, and frictions to solve engineering problems.
