A Comprehensive Course on Engineering Mechanics, Statics and Dynamics.
- The subject of mechanics is fundamental to so many fields of study in the physical science and engineering. In its broad sense, mechanics may be defined as the science which describes and predicts the conditions of rest or motion of bodies under the action of forces.
- From the engineering perspective, the important area of mechanics are the mechanics of solid and of fluid. In this course, we consider only the mechanics of rigid type of solid bodies which is divided into two parts: statics and dynamics.
- In statics, we consider the effects and distribution of forces on rigid bodies which are remain at rest. In dynamics, we consider the various motions of rigid bodies and correlate them with the forces causing them.
