MT 251 - Statics and Dynamics

Credits: 3
Studies statics and dynamics of mechanical systems by solving problems of small sub-systems using a calculator. Studies forces in 2-D and 3-D acting on particle systems and rigid bodies. Solves problems using the following concepts: equilibrium laws, centroids, center of gravity, moment of inertia. Uses 3 methods to study dynamics of motion - kinematics, work/energy and impulse/momentum.

Outcomes and Objectives
  1. Solve for systems of static forces.
    1. Apply the concepts and calculate vectors for collinear, concurrent, coplanar force systems and friction force systems
    2. Apply the concepts and calculate external statically determinate forces on machine elements and structures to determine reaction forces
    3. Apply the concepts of internal forces and calculate forces on elements of a truss or frame
    4. Apply the concepts and calculate centroid and moment of inertia for single and composite machine elements or structural sections
    5. Practice problems may include robotics, automation, and machinery.
  2. Able to solve for systems of dynamic forces.
    1. Apply the concepts and calculate displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, work, or energy, to particles or a system of particles in linear or angular motion
    2. Apply concepts and calculate impulse and momentum forces to rigid bodies in motion
    3. Practice problems may include robotics, automation, and machinery.
