General Course Objectives
At the end of the course the student will:1. Acquire knowledge in basic principles of engineering mechanics.2. Demonstrate an understanding of fundamental properties of force systems and vectors.3. Draw complete free-body diagrams of whole or part mechanisms.4. Apply the equations of equilibrium, SF = 0, SM = 0 to the three-dimensional system.5. Apply these principles in the analysis of structures, both frames to support loads and machines to transmit loads.6. Apply the friction laws for dry surfaces to both flat surfaces and flat belts. Determine if motion is impending.7. Locate centroids of simple and composite area.8. Determine the moment of inertia of simple and composite area.9. Assess individual ability in using the mathematical problem solving process.
