Page 1 of 4 EGM 3401 Fall 2011 Version 1 EGM3401: Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics Syllabus -- Fall 2011 -- Section 5839 (Modifications to this syllabus may be required during the semester. Any changes to the syllabus will be posted on the course web site and announced in class.) 1. Catalog Description : Dynamics of particles and rigid bodies for rectilinear translation, curvilinear motion, rotation and plane motion. Principles of work and energy, also impulse and momentum. Plus extended coverage of three-dimensional rigid-body dynamics and of orbital motion Credits: 3 2. Pre-requisites : Pre-requisite: EGM 2511 (or EGM 2500) and MAC 2313 3. Course Objectives: This is a core course in the engineering curriculum. It stresses fundamental engineering science and mathematical principles required for a proper understanding of mechanics. This course aims at providing basic coverage of particle and rigid body dynamics to undergraduate engineering students. The material covered is a foundation for many other courses and is used frequently by most engineers. Students are expected to learn the application of work/energy and of impulse/momentum principles to dynamical systems under both planar and three-dimensional conditions. 4. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component : EGM 3401 supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specific MAE program outcomes supported by this course include: (1) Using knowledge of chemistry and calculus based physics with depth in at least one of them ( ME Program Outcome M1 ); (2) Using knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations ( ME Program Outcome M2 ); (3) Being able to work professionally in the area of rigid body dynamical systems. ( ME Program Outcome M4 ); (4) (partial) Possess knowledge of orbital mechanics and mathematics ( AE Program Outcome A5 ). Mathematical Sciences (15%), Physical Sciences (15%), Engineering Science, (70%) 5. Relationship of course to program outcomes : This course achieves the following ABET outcomes [note that the outcome number corresponds to the respective ABET outcomes (a) through (k): (a) Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering [ high coverage; method of assessment is selected quiz problems to measure Outcome (a) ] (e) Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems [ high coverage; method of assessment is selected quiz problems to measure Outcome (e)
