Principles of mechanics including points, bodies, and assemblies in
static equilibrium. Areas examined will including trusses,
frames, beams, cables, machines, point and distributed loading, and moments of inertia,
scalar and vector analysis. More advance topics will include deformable bodies and
stress, strain, torsion, shear, bending, and fracture.
Introduction to kinetics, kinematics, and strength of materials.
See below for more details.
