Engineering Mechanics course objectives:

The objectives of this course are to

  • Explain the resolution of a system of forces, compute their resultant and solve problems using equations of equilibrium
  • Perform analysis of bodies lying on rough surfaces.
  • Locate the centroid of a body and compute the area moment of inertia and mass moment of inertia of standard and composite sections
  • Explain kinetics and kinematics of particles, projectiles, curvilinear motion, centroidal motion and plane motion of rigid bodies.
  • Explain the concepts of work-energy method and its applications to translation, rotation and plane motion and the concept of vibrations.


Engineering Mechanics course outcomes:

At the end of the course, students will be able to

  • Determine resultant of forces acting on a body and analyse equilibrium of a body subjected  to a system of forces.
  • Solve problem of bodies subjected to friction.
  • Find the location of centroid and calculate moment of inertia of a given section.
  • Understand the kinetics and kinematics of a body undergoing rectilinear, curvilinear, rotatory motion and rigid body motion.
  • Solve problems using work energy equations for translation, fixed axis rotation and plane motion and solve problems of vibration.
