Applications in Engineering Mechanics Course Overview
Applications in Engineering Mechanics coursera course applies principles learned in my course “Introduction to Engineering Mechanics” to analyze real-world engineering structures. You will need to have mastered the engineering fundamentals from that class in order to be successful in this course offering. This course addresses the modeling and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an emphasis on real-world engineering systems and problem-solving.
Applications of the Equations of Static Equilibrium to Interacting Bodies or Parts of a Structure; Systems Containing Multi-force Members; Frames and Machines
In this section, students will learn the applications of the equations of static equilibrium to interacting bodies or parts of a structure. Students will learn about systems containing multi-force members, frames, and machines.
WEEK 2 – Plane Trusses
In the section, students will learn about Truss structures, specifically the method of joints, method of sections, and zero force members.
WEEK 3 – Space Trusses; Shear Force and Bending Moment Diagrams
In this section, students will learn about space trusses and will be introduced to shear force and bending moment diagrams.
WEEK 4 – Cable Support Systems
In this section, students will learn about cable support systems, specifically concentrated loads and suspension loads.
WEEK 5 – Coulomb Friction and Belt Friction
In this section, students will learn about coulomb friction and belt friction.
