Statics is the branch of engineering mechanics that is concerned with the analysis of forces on physical systems in static equilibrium. This class will help you interpret the forces supporting objects we encounter in our daily lives. Topics include: force systems, equilibrium, structural analysis, distributed forces, internal forces, friction, and virtual work. Finally, an introduction to mechanics of materials will be covered.
