The overall aim of this course is to introduce a fundamental area of rigid body-mechanics called "Statics". Knowledge of statics is fundamental to many engineering applications as it enables engineers to make predictions about how things will behave when they are subject to some actions. For example engineers need to predict how a bridge structure will behave under the influence of forces such as the cars, trucks & trains that will cross it and even under its own self weight. Engineering Statics is an analytical tool which can be used to make predictions about how forces affect structures. You will use the technique to predict how forces cause beams, columns and machine parts to bend, stretch and possibly break.
Before enrolling in this course you need to:
Allow approximately 8-9 hours study time per week for each 15 credit course. Your workload may be higher around assessment due dates or exam time.
