Courses and Descriptions


This course covers the basic concepts of statics – sources and effects of forces, definitions of force and moment, force components and resultants, support conditions, free - body diagrams, equilibrium - as applied to the analysis of trusses and simple beams. A combination of lectures, tutorials and problem based learning tasks are used to teach the theory and application of statics. Practical structural laboratory demonstrations and computer model simulations are performed to illustrate the theoretical concepts.
