Applied Mechanics

Code:
MECH 2152

This course analyses the static forces and moments that are created in a variety of structures due to externally applied forces. Classroom examples will focus on problems commonly encountered within the industrial workplace and problems will concentrate on static solutions where the body is both stationary and rigid. It is assumed that students possess an understanding of algebra and trigonometry before attempting this subject and emphasis is placed on a problem solving approach using mathematical and calculator methods combined with free body diagrams and sketches.

Notes:

No class July 1.

Due to our campus closure as a result of Covid-19, this course will not be taught in class at the Oshawa or Whitby Campus.
