Kraus Phone 267-303-1279 E-mail (preferred) email@example.com Office Hours TBA Designation: Required Catalog Description: Covers intermediate static mechanics, an extension of the fundamental concepts and methods of static mechanics introduced in the freshman courses TDEC 111, TDEC 113, and TDEC 115. Includes topics such as problem formulation and solution methods; two- and three-dimensional vector representation of forces, moments and couples; static equilibrium of particles, rigid bodies, and engineering structures; analysis of external and internal forces in structures via methods of free-body diagrams; and properties of cross- sectional areas.
