EGM 2511 Fall 2011 v1.0 EGM2511: Engineering Mechanics: Statics Syllabus Fall 2011 – All Sections (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.) Catalog Description : Reduction of force systems. Equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies. Vector methods. Application to structures and mechanisms. Credits: 3 Pre-requisites : Pre-requisite: PHY 2048 Co-requisite: MAC 2313 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. Students will learn to use vector methods and free body diagram development as tools to logically approach and solve engineering mechanics problems in both the SI and U.S. customary systems. In this course the student will develop engineering problem solving methods through fundamental introductory topics in mechanics including: particle and rigid body equilibrium in 2D and 3D force systems, appropriate support reactions, moments of forces, equivalent systems, distributed forces, center of gravity, composite body and integration analysis methods, trusses, frames, machines, internal forces (including shear and bending moment diagrams), friction concepts, moment of inertia, parallel axis theorem, mass moment of inertia, virtual work, and potential energy methods. Upon completion of this course students are expected to understand how to analyze practical engineering structures under force and moment systems and have a strong foundation of the engineering mechanics principles and methods needed for both use as qualified engineers and for secondary courses in mechanics. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component : EGM 2511 supports program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The specific ME program outcome supported by this course includes: (1) Posses ability to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas including the design and realization of such systems. Mathematics (10%), Physical Sciences (20%), Engineering Sciences (60%), Engineering Design (10%)
