To give students a fundamental understanding of basic principles in engineering mechanics. Topics include force systems, the principle equilibrium of forces in two and three dimensional space, free-body diagram, centroid and moment of inertia of a solid body, etc. The fundamental principles are applied to solve problems of civil engineering systems, such as beam, truss and frame. Prerequisite: MATH 132. Corequisites: Physics 151 & 153.
