force systems


Course description This course introduces students to the principles of mechanics as applied to engineering objects and systems. It covers only statics, a branch of mechanics that studies the effects of forces and moments acting on rigid bodies that are either at rest or moving with a constant velocity in a straight line. It introduces...
