DISTRIBUTED FORCES:
MOMENTS OF INERTIA
9- 1
Application
The deflection in structural
members and the moment acting
on an area behind a dam are
examples of analyses requiring the
moment of inertia.

CHAPTER 8
FRICTION
2-1
Application
Friction is both problematic and
useful in many engineering
applications, such as in tires
and brakes.

Introduction
In preceding chapters, it was assumed that surfaces in contact were
either frictionless (surfaces c

Tutorial 2: Chapter 3 Rigid Bodies:
Equivalent Systems of Forces
1. A 90-N force is applied to the control rod AB as shown. Knowing that the length of
the rod is 225 mm and that the moment of the force about B is 13.5 Nm clockw

Tutorial 3: Chapter 3 Rigid Bodies:
Equivalent Systems of Forces
1. A 3-m-long beam is subjected to a variety of loadings. Replace each loading with an
equivalent force-couple system at end A of the beam for both (a) and (b).

CHAPTER 6
Analysis of Structures
Application
Design of support structures requires
knowing the loads, or forces, that each
member of the structure will
experience.
Functional elements, such as the holding
force of this pliers, can be determined
from conce

Tutorial 1: Statics of Particles
KMEB 1102 Applied Mechanics
1. Two forces are applied at point B of beam AB. Determine graphically the magnitude
and direction of their resultant using (a) the parallelogram law, (b) the triangle rule.
2. A steel tank is t

Introduction
The objective for the current chapter is to investigate the effects of forces
on particles:

Chapter 5
Distributed Forces:
Centroids and Centers of Gravity
Application
There are many examples in engineering analysis of distributed
loads. It is convenient in some cases to represent such loads as a
concentrated force located at the centroid of the

Equilibrium of Rigid Bodies
Application
Engineers
designing this
crane will need
to determine the
forces that act
on this body
under various
conditions.

Introduction
For a rigid body, the condition of static equilibrium means that the
