Description | Equivalent Force Systems: Basic concepts of force-couple systems. planar firce systems: parallel force systems; simplest equivalent for general force system- "wrench". distributed force systems.Equations of Statics and its Applications: Simple frictionless rigid body assemblies; two foce members: machines: trusses: cables: rigid body assemblies including friction.Virtual Work and Potential Energy Principles: Application of these principles as replacement of equations of statics for real life problems.Vibrations: Equations of motion for single degree-of-freedom systems and rigid body assemblies: free vibration (simple harmonic oscillator): concepts of dampling and cirtical damping: damped free vibration: equations of motion for harmonic excitation: transient and steady-state vibrations: illustration of MDOF systems concepts with two degree-of-freedom systems. |
