IMEC-1541 Rigid Solids Mechanics

This is the first course of a series of three courses in the area of Mechanical Systems in the Mechanical Engineering Program. This course focuses on the basic concepts of applied mechanics in engineering (free body diagram, degrees of freedom, Newton’s laws, etc). This course is structured in three parts: the first part is dedicated to fundamentals; the second part is dedicated to statics of particles, bodies and systems; the third part is dedicated to dynamics of particles (kinematics and kinetics; motion in a plane, conservation of energy and linear momentum).
