Unformatted text preview: Revised August 23, 2010 CES 3102 – MECHANICS OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES – 4 CREDITS – FALL 2010 – SECTION 4872 Dr. Kurtis Gurley, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering Weil 475, firstname.lastname@example.org, (352) 392‐9537 x 1508 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM Tuesday and Thursday in Weil 475. Other times by appointment. TBA Sylvia Laboy, Ph.D. Candidate Office Hours: M (p. 4 & 8), W (p. 8), F (p. 4), located in 475 Weil Hall A review of the calculation of reactions, shear, and bending moment. Analysis of statically determinate trusses with the joint and section methods. Analysis of statically determinate beams and frames. Definition, construction, and use of influence lines. Analysis of deflections using the double‐integration, moment‐area and virtual work methods. Analysis of statically indeterminate structures using the force and slope‐deflection methods. To introduce the student to the basic concepts and principles of structural theory relating to statically determinate beams, arches, trusses and rigid frames, including deflection techniques. Introduce students to beginning concepts of indeterminate analysis. To teach the student to identify, formulate, and solve open‐ended structural engineering problems. The course will also enhance the student’s ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for the practicing structural engineer. EGM 3520, Mechanics of Materials IES Visual Analysis Software available at www.iesweb.com/edu/students.htm. CCE Laboratory computers also have it loaded. You are expected to show up on time for class. Please turn off all cellular phones and pagers prior to the start of class. Please do not bring food to class. Late homework will not be accepted. You must submit all assignments on engineering paper or in printed Mathcad worksheets. The layout and appearance of your work must be of professional quality. Please underline or box the answers and provide your name, the course number, the assignment number at the top of the first page. Makeup quizzes are not normally allowed. If you cannot attend a quiz or meet a due date, you must contact the instructor prior to the exam or due date. Students must review and follow the University Student Code of Conduct found at http://www.dso.ufl.edu/studentguide/studentconductcode.php. Instructor Lecture Times 9:35 AM – 11:30 AM Tuesday and Thursday in FLG 260 Office Hours Website TA Course Description Course Objectives Learning Outcomes Coerequisite Required Software Student Behavior Homework Policy Required Text Hibbeler, R., Structural Analysis, 7th Edition, Prentice Hall, 2009 Exam Policy Academic Honesty Revised August 23, 2010 Grading Seven in‐class, closed‐book quizzes will comprise 90% of the final grade. Seven homework assignments will account for the remaining 10% of the final grade. Each quiz will be preceded by a homework assignment on the quiz subject. The lowest homework and quiz grades will be dropped. The purpose of the drop system is to accommodate your scheduling needs and to obviate the need for make‐ up quizzes caused by unplanned events (e.g., attending a funeral). In order for the final quiz to be dropped, you must score higher than a 60%. The final grade will be determined based on a class average performance and my expectations of what you should know. This is not a straight scale or a standard curve. You can all earn an A if your performance merits it. After a quiz or homework is posted, you have five (5) business days to discuss the grading with the instructor/TA. Grades will not be changed after that time. Notes: The ratio of 90% to 10% quiz to HW is fixed. The number of quizzes and homeworks may change from seven and seven as the pace of the course dictates. The class will be notified as changes become necessary. ABET‐Related This course achieves the following ABET‐related objectives and outcomes: Objectives and 1. Technical Proficiency: Our graduates will have ability to: Outcomes 3a. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve civil engineering problems Revised August 23, 2010 Notes: The topics and order are unlikely to change. However, the specific calendar days in the schedule below are a guide and subject to change as the pace of the course dictates. The quiz dates are projections and may change.
