CE 270: Applied Mechanics I (3 credits)
This course is a study of equilibrium of rigid bodies under the action of forces and the application of the principles of mechanics to solve static problems in engineering. (3 hours lecture)
Pre-Requisite(s): Physics 170; credit for or registration in Math 243 or consent of instructor.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:
- Solve problems involving forces, resultant and static equilibrium and their application to rigid bodies.
- Analyze equilibrium of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions.
- Solve problems involving center of gravity, centroids, couples, and moments of inertia.
- Analyze engineering structures subjected to concentrated loads, distributed loads, and frictional forces.
- Utilize abstract thinking and analytical reasoning in the analysis of word problems dealing with mechanical structures.
- Apply calculation techniques to dynamic problems in engineering.
