1 Drexel University Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics MEM 202 ENGINEERING MECHANICS – STATICS FALL TERM 2011 2012 Instructor and Teaching Assistant Information: Instructor Teaching Assistants Name Dr. Andrei G. Jablokow Alka Basnet Jasen Carroll Office Randell 115 Email [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Office Hours By appointment, via email By appt, via email By appt, via email 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. Prerequisites: TDEC 113 Physics Fundamentals of Engineering II (Minimum Grade: D) or Physics 185 – Physics I (Minimum Grade: D) or Physics 111 – Physics I (Minimum Grade: D) Textbook and On line Resources: Engineering Mechanics – STATICS with Mastering Engineering Package, 12th Edition, R.C. Hibbeler, Pearson Prentice Hall, 2009, ISBN 10: 0137031939 or ISBN 13: 9780137031931 (Includes Mastering Engineering access). It is possible to purchase the on line only version of the book or only the MasteringEngineering on line access. The website for Mastering Engineering is www.MasteringEngineering.com Course ID: MEM202201115 Course Objectives: This course provides the starting engineering students with a smooth transition from science based mechanics problems to engineering based mechanics problems , i.e. from equilibrium of relatively simple force systems to force systems in structures with connected members and with complex geometry. The specific objectives are: 1. Develop equilibrium equations for particles 2. Draw free body diagrams 3. Determine the resultants of a force and couple system 4. Reduce a force and couple system 5. Reduce a distributed load into a resultant force 6. Develop equilibrium equations for rigid bodies 7. Apply the method of joints and method of sections to solving truss problems 8. Develop equilibrium equations for frames and machines 9. Determine internal forces in structural members 10. Calculate the center of gravity and centroid for a system of particles and rigid body Lecture and Recitation Sections Section CRN Time Room Leader Number Lecture A 11053 MON & WED 9:00 – 9:50 am CAT 61 Jablokow 117 Recitation 001 10632 THU 3:00 pm – 3:50 pm Curtis 453 Carroll 31 003 14069 THU 2:00 pm– 2:50 pm Curtis 453 Carroll 32 004 14067 THU 4:00 pm – 4:50 pm Curtis 453 Basnet 32 005 14068 THU 5:00 pm – 5:50 pm LeBow 241 Basnet 22
