Course Overview:
This course teaches the most fundamental concepts that a civil engineering will use for nearly every course beyond it in the 2000, 3000, and 4000 level courses.
Course highlights:
Learn free body diagrams, 2 and 3 dimensional equilibrium of rigid bodies, analysis of machines, pulleys, trusses. Centroids, moments of inertia, shear and bending moment diagrams
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Go to every class to copy down example problems. Don't be afraid to ask the professor where some number popped up or why a certain method is being used on a truss for example. Do as many practice problems as possible. The material is conceptually easy but needs practice to master.
