EGR 251 Statics

This course considers the effects of forces on rigid bodies in two and three dimensions. Students apply engineering concepts of force vectors, moments, and static equilibrium to solve engineering design problems. The course investigates techniques for structural analysis of beams, columns, mechanisms, trusses and shafts. Topics include friction, torsion, centroids, center of gravity, moment of inertia, and shear and moment diagrams.  Prerequisites: PHY 101 or PHY 211, and MTH 172.  Three lecture hours per week.  3 credits  Fall
