Principles of statics: Introduction to vector approach – free body diagrams- forces in a plane – forces in space – concurrent forces – resolution of forces – equilibrium of particles
Statics of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions: Moment of force about a point – moment of force about an axis – moment of a couple – equivalent force couple system – rigid body equilibrium – support reactions.
Application of statics: Friction – ladder friction – wedge friction – analysis of trusses – method of joints and method of sections.
Centroid and center of gravity: centroid of lines, areas and volumes – composite bodies. Second moment of area – polar moment of inertia – mass moment of inertia – radius of gyration.
Method of virtual work for static equilibrium problems.
Dynamics of particles: kinematics of particles – rectilinear motion – relative motion – relative motion – position, velocity and acceleration calculation in cylindrical coordinates.
Dynamics of rigid bodies: General plane motion – translation and rotation of rigid bodies – Chasle’s theorem – velocity and acceleration calculation in moving frames – Corioil’s acceleration.
