Instructor's Description of Course » Kirkner, David » CE  20150 - Section 01:  Statics (CRN 12536)
This section presents the instructor's preliminary design of the course. It is intended to help students gain a general sense of what the course will be like.
Course Objectives
student should be able to present engineering calculations in a neat, orderly, logical format.
Students should be understand the basic concept of a system in equilibrium: forces balance and moment balance.
Students should be able to draw accurate, precise, neat free-body diagrams for systems in equilibrium.
Students should be able to write equations of equilibrium, force balance and moment balance referred to a free-body diagram.
Students should be able to apply the concepts of equilibrium and free-body diagrams to a range of practical problems.
