ME 114 - Analytical Mechanics

Credit Hours: 3

A basic engineering statics course primarily dealing with the topics of force systems, equilibrium, centroids, moments of inertia, space forces, trusses, frames, and friction.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • understand basic fundamentals of engineering mechanics as they are used to their own end and also as they are used in subsequent courses of mechanics of materials and machine elements;
  • determine and analize 2D, & 3D forces and force systems including moments and couples;
  • determine centroids, center of gravity, and moment of inertia;
  • analyze laws of friction and to implement application of friction; and
  • determine the equilibrium of structures including trusses.

Prerequisites: MT 121 or MT 125 or permission of the instructor.
