ENGR 210 (71274 SECTION 002)
ENGINEERING STATICS
SYLLABUS FOR FALL 2011
This course will provide you with the ability to understand and apply physical and mathematical
concepts of static equilibrium.
The principles and procedures you will learn in this course are
applied every day by engineers and scientists in many different ways. Following courses,
Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials and Fluid Mechanics, apply the same principles, so the
principles you learn in this course will be invaluable.
Course Objectives:
After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:
•
Determine the forces and moments acting upon a rigid body or system of rigid bodies;
•
Construct clear and concise freebody diagrams for any rigid body or system of rigid
bodies;
•
Develop equations of equilibrium from freebody diagrams;
•
Solve equations of equilibrium.

Homework:
Several homework problems will be assigned in every week.
Homework is to be
submitted in the beginning of the Monday class session.
No late homework will
be accepted.
Three lowest grades will be dropped in the homework grading (10%
of the total grade) as a “makeup” policy. Therefore, if unavoidable things occur
(e.g., sickness, juror duty, or traffic jam) and you cannot turn in your homework,
use this policy. Again, no late homework will be accepted.
Homework must be
neat and clear. Please use a pencil and an eraser. All dimensional quantities must
have proper units.
Show diagrams and computation processes. Underline the final
answer.
