'Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics' is a course offered in the second semester of  B. Tech. in Civil Engineering program at the School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Course Objectives

  • To understand the procedure for analysis of static objects; concepts of force, moment, and mechanical equilibrium.
  • To analyze forces and moments in two and three dimensions due to concentrated and distributed forces in various systems such as beams, frames and trusses.
  • To analyze the bodies which is in motion using the basics of kinetics and kinematics

Course Outcomes

  • Able to analyze force systems in plane and also in space.
  • Able to solve two and three dimensional rigid body static equilibrium problems.
  • Able to determine the centroid of planes, center of gravity of masses and evaluate their moments of inertia.
  • Able to evaluate velocity and acceleration of a particle in rectangular and cylindrical coordinate systems and angular velocity of rigid bodies that are in plane motion.
  • Able to solve the problem related to bodies in dynamic Equilibrium and bodies undergoing forced and free vibration using the laws of kinetics
