EGR 210 - Statics


Course Description: This course will provide students opportunities to apply Newton’s Laws to engineering problems in statics. The free-body diagram method is emphasized. Topics include vector algebra, force, moment of force, couples, static equilibrium of rigid bodies, trusses, shear and moment diagrams, friction, properties of areas, centroids, moment of inertia, flexible cables, screws, bearings and belts.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of PHY 171; Concurrent enrollment in or completion of MAT 291
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Apply the rules of manipulating vectors
  • Construct a complete free-body diagram and write the appropriate equilibrium equation from the free-body diagram.
  • Apply Newton’s Laws to solve engineering problems. 
  • Recognize a statically indeterminate frame.
  • Solve problems involving static friction.
