Unit Code: MCD521

Unit Name: Applied Mechanics :Statics

Description: The unit is designed to provide the basics of engineering mechanics (statics). This unit deals with the fundamental knowledge of statics of engineering mechanics. The unit covers scalars and vectors, two-dimensional force systems, forces, moments, couples, resultants, free-body diagrams, equilibrium of forces, trusses, frames, beams, centroids, a moment of area, friction and torsion of shafts.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Apply knowledge of engineering fundamentals respectively to wide practical procedures and practices. 2. Identifies relevant constraints and requirements and sets out an accurate description of the problem. 3. Applies established diagnostic processes and codified methods to define problems. 4. Manages own activities with honesty and integrity and in an orderly manner to meet deadlines. 5. Presents clearly written laboratory reports for technical audiences. 6. Demonstrates self-awareness of own level of competence and identifies opportunities to extend own competence in a timely manner.
