CE 201 Engineering Mechanics: Statics


The course is designed to expose the students to the basic principles of statics. The content of the lecture will be emphasized on the application of the basic principle of mechanics used in civil engineering. Statics deals with equilibrium of bodies, i.e. bodies at rest and bodies moving with a constant velocity. It includes resultant and resolution of forces, equilibrium of a particle, force system resultant, equilibrium of rigid bodies, center of gravity and centroid, moment of inertia of an area. Analysis of trusses by method of joint and section, Friction, Determination of support reactions for a beam subjected to the distributed loads writing general equations for drawing shear and moment diagrams at various sections of the beam.
