CIVE 2221: Statics and Solid Mechanics
Lecture - 4 credits
- Connects fundamentals of Newtonian physics to the stresses and deformations in solids.
- Introduces properties of areas and volumes (centroidal axes, moments of inertia); equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies in two and three dimensions; analysis of internal forces in trusses and simple frames; shear and moment diagrams in beams; computation of stresses induced by axial force, moment, shear, and torque; and mechanical properties of materials.
