Statics for Engineers

Subject Course No. Credit Value
Civil Engineering CE 1023 Four (4) credit hours

Engineering statics is the study of how forces are transferred through components of our built environment into their supports. Primarily relying on principals of equilibrium, students in this course learn how to compute reactions, how to find internal forces in trusses, beams, and frames, and how to find important properties of shapes that are used in engineering design.

Instructor: Alan Lloyd (please contact the instructor to request an up-to-date syllabus)
PHYS 1081 Foundations of Physics for Engineers (or equivalent physics course introducing forces from Newton’s laws of motion)
MATH 1003 Introduction to Calculus I (or equivalent math course introducing functions, curve sketching, extrema of functions, and derivatives of polynomials)
MATH 1503 Introduction to Linear Algebra (or equivalent math course or content within other courses introducing working with simple systems of equations or permission from the instructor)
MATH 1013 Introduction to Calculus II (or equivalent math course or other instruction in integration of polynomials)

Why take this course?

  • Understand how forces are transferred through components of our built environment into their supports.
  • Learn how to compute internal forces and moments within different components of structures.
  • Learn how to find key properties of shapes that will be used for design and analysis of engineered components in future courses.
