Course description

Statics is the backbone of all mechanical engineering disciplines

In this course, we will go from understanding very basic concepts of physics like time, length, and mass step by step through studying motion and working with forces and force components to understanding the equilibrium of particles and bodies.

After finishing the course you will be able to isolate mechanical subsystems and represent them with their free body diagram including the external forces acting on them and the reactions of the supports.

the following concepts will be discussed in the course:

  • Section one: The fundamentals

    • What is mechanics

    • The building blocks of mechanics: Time, length and mass

    • Motion: Position, velocity and acceleration

  • Section two: Newton Laws

    • Newtons first law: What is there is no force?

    • Newton's second law: What if there is a force? 

    • Newton's third law: What happens to objects that apply force?

  • Equilibrium and working with forces

    • Force

    • Weight

    • Equilibrium of a particle

    • Breaking forces into their components, working with a force as a vector

    • The Moment of a force

    • Equilibrium of a body

    • Reactions and FBD

      • Reaction of smooth and rough surfaces

      • Friction

      • Reactions of supports

      • Smooth and rough surfaces

      • Roller supports,

      • Pinned connections

      • Fixed connections

      • Sliding supports

      • Free body diagram FBD
