ENGR 2403 - Engineering Mechanics - Statics and Dynamics

Prerequisites: PHYS 2425  and MATH 2414  or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better.

This course presents the calculus-based theory and applications of engineering mechanics to the analysis of structures in static equilibrium and the relative motions of particles and rigid bodies. Free-body diagrams, systems of forces, Newton's Laws, work-energy relations, and impulse-momentum principles are utilized in conjunction with vector algebra to treat concentrated and distributed loads, centroids, moments of inertia, and laws of dry friction. Engineering applications such as trusses, frames, and machines are also addressed.
