Monday-Thursday 10:10 AM - 12:10 PM
Students will utilize vetor operations to manipulate and determine properties of force vectors.
Students will determine conditions of equilibrium using free body diagrams.
Students will determine moments of force through scalar and vector means.
Students will utilize vector operations to specify couple moments and moments about a specified axis.
Students will study conditions for equilibrium of rigid bodies including constraints and two and three force members.
Students will invoke structural analysis including the method of joints and the method of sections.
Students will determine the center of gravity, mass, and the centroid of a body.
Students will determine moments of inertias for areas.
The final grade for the course will be based on the average of the scores earned on the homework assignments, and exams. The homework assignments account for 20% of the course grade, exams account for 80% of the course grade. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X = 25• (Exam I % + Exam II %) + 30• (Final Exam %) + 20• (Homework %)
Homework assignments must be turned in on the due date, at the beginning of class. Once class starts, late assignments will be accepted for discounted credit at the discretion of the instructor.
You are expected to attend class regularly and are responsible for notes, homework assignments, and exams missed while absent.
