Mechanics of solids

Course Description

This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and methods of structural mechanics. Topics covered include: static equilibrium, force resultants, support conditions, analysis of determinate planar structures (beams, trusses, frames), stresses and strains in structural elements, states of stress (shear, bending, torsion), statically indeterminate systems, displacements and deformations, introduction to matrix methods, elastic stability, and approximate methods. Design exercises are used to encourage creative student initiative and systems thinking.

Course Objective

The course covers lessons in Planar Rigid Body,Degrees of freedom,Structural Systems with rigid bodies,Stability of Structural systems,Stability of Structural systems,Kinematics velocity and acceleration,Solving Problems.
