This course includes vector analysis, equilibrium of force systems, friction, sectional properties, stress/strain, and deformation. Topics include resultants and components of forces, moments and couples, free-body diagrams, shear and moment diagrams, trusses, frames, beams, columns, connections, and combined stresses. Upon completion, students should be able to analyze simple structures.

·Student Learning Outcomes
·1. Calculate reaction forces in a structure using equations of Equilibrium.
·2. Draw free body diagrams of two dimensional force systems.
·3. Calculate stresses and deflections in axial/torsional/bending systems.
·4. Calculate centroids and moments of inertia for areas.
·5. Apply engineering best practices and standards to design safe and efficient mechanical and structural components.
