MET211 Statics

This course covers fundamentals and applications of statics, including the analysis of coplanar and non-coplanar force systems using analytical and graphical methods. Students will learn about systems of forces and couples; equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies; distributed force systems; normal, shear and bending moment diagrams; centroids and moments of inertia; and the analysis of structures. Upon successful course completion, students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of statics by applying the concepts to solve for forces induced in engineering structures by external loads in equilibrium.
