Equivalent Systems of Forces and Equilibrium

We will study the effect of a system of forces and couples acting on a rigid body and will state the conditions of equilibrium for particles, rigid bodies and assemblies of rigid bodies. The number of independent number of equations that are necessary and sufficient for satisfying equilibrium will be clearly stated.

Trusses

Trusses are in a sense the simplest structures to analyze, used widely in structures such as bridges, industrial roofs, and cranes. We are going to introduce two methods of analysis, namely the method of joints and the method of sections to determine the member internal forces. In addition, we will study a computer-aided method for analyzing trusses.
