Engineering Mechanics: Statics


What is Engineering Mechanics?

Engineering Mechanics is a branch of science that deals with the effect of external forces acting on a body at rest or in motion.

Why is Engineering Mechanics important?

Engineering Mechanics plays a vital role in designing of structures and machine elements. It is the fundamental subject for engineering solutions related to architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and so on.

What will you gain from this course?

This course covers the following:

fundamental concepts, equilibrium of particles, equilibrium of rigid bodies, different types of beams, supports and reactions, center of gravity, moment of inertia, friction, and their importance

  • Basic Concepts of Engineering Mechanics: Outline of Engineering Mechanics, definition, and scope.
  • Equilibrium of Particles: Principle of Superposition of Forces, Resolution of Forces, Parallelogram Law of Forces, Lami’s Theorem, Equilibrium of a Particle, and Free-body Diagram.
  • Equilibrium of Rigid Bodies: Internal Forces, External Forces, and Principle of Transmissibility, Moment of a Force-Concept; Varignon’s Theorem and Couple, Resolution of a force into force and couple system of forces
  • Beams, Supports, and Reactions: Free-body Diagram, Equilibrium, and Conditions of Equilibrium, and determination of support reactions.
  • Centroid and Centre of Gravity: Important Definitions, Determination of center of gravity of Plane Figures.
  • Moment of Inertia: Second Moment of Area-Introduction and MOI for Simple Configurations, and Moment of Inertia of Composite Plane Sections.

This course also includes solved numerical examples, interactive quizzes, and assignments/exercises in each section for self-evaluation.

The numerical examples are solved in a step-by-step process, explained with clear concepts so that the students will be able to understand without any ambiguity.

Also, this course provides downloadable study materials in pdf format for future reference. The exercises are solved and provided with the answers.
