EM 251: Statics – Fall 2010 Section 01 MWF 1:10 – 2:00 Roberts Hall Rm 101 Section 02 MWF 10:00 - 10:50 Reid Hall Rm 103 OBJECTIVES: To teach students to analyze elementary static systems. The course will rely on the students’ prerequisite knowledge of mathematics and basic science in assimilating new principles and analytical techniques, and problem solving skills for Statics. The necessary skills in vector representation, operations, and analysis will be treated to provide the mathematical tools necessary for equilibrium analysis. Methods for analyzing/evaluating equilibrium of two dimensional and three dimensional scenarios are developed. Only statically determinate situations are addressed and the techniques for determining whether a situation is determinate or indeterminate are treated. By the end of the course, students will be able to determine both the internal and external forces associated with simple frames and machines in two and three dimensions for statically determinant conditions. In addition, area and mass properties will be covered. OUTCOMES: Students will be able to solve a variety of engineering problems that involve static equilibrium. Students will understand the technical basis for performing these evaluations. Problem solving skills will be enhanced by instruction and application of problem solving methods in this class. Students will attain a knowledge of technical subjects which supports further study in mechanics of materials, particle & rigid body dynamics, and machine design.
