ENGI-3004Advanced Mechanics for Power Engineers

This applied mechanics course covers theory required for both 3rd and 2nd class licenses and builds from Principles of Mechanics I.  Students will explain and solve problems for a range of mechanical calculations that Power Engineers must perform on a regular basis—from work, power, and energy, through to vector diagrams, friction linear and angular velocity. They will also apply the theory of mechanics to calculate mechanical advantage, efficiency, shearing forces, bending moments, density and specific gravity, bending moments, and acceleration. The advanced component of this course specific to working towards the 2nd class theory license delves deeper into concepts of the theory of mechanics. Students will study the relationships among and solve problems in, for example, advanced mechanics velocity; work, power and energy; torque and angular motion; friction, moments of forces; stress/strain; shearing forces and bending moments; torsion; and pressure and flow of liquids.
