Course includes both lecture and lab components per week. Investigate loads acting on a physical system that do not result in acceleration. Use vectors and free body diagrams to analyze systems in equilibrium. Evaluate the internal forces of trusses, frames, and machines. Calculate equivalent forces and moments of a force system, centroids, and area moments of inertia. Reinforce concepts through hands-on experiments. Prerequisite: grade of C or higher in MATH 221 and PHYS 260.
