Specific goal of this course is to equip the students in different branches of engineering with basic concepts of statics and strength of materials.
Mechanics is the study of forces that act on bodies and the resultant motion that those bodies experience. With roots in physics and mathematics, Engineering Mechanics (including mechanics of solids and mechanics of fluids) is the basis of all mechanical sciences including but not limited to Civil Engineering, Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Geological Engineering, Mining Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering.
Engineering Mechanics provides the "building blocks" of statics, dynamics, strength of materials, and fluid dynamics. Engineering mechanics is the the discipline devoted to the solution of mechanics problems through the integrated application of mathematical, scientific, and engineering principles. Special emphasis is placed on the physical principles underlying modern engineering design.
