2 1. Course Description from the Current Catalog This course provides an integrated treatment of Vector Mechanics (Statics) and Linear Algebra. It also emphasizes matrix methods for solving engineering problems. Students will be expected to learn key principles of Statics and Linear Algebra and to demonstrate skills with vector and matrix manipulations. 2. Statement of Course Objectives The objectives of this course are to enable the student to analyze external and internal force systems acting on particles and rigid physical bodies in static equilibrium. The student shall be able to model engineering systems by making simplifying assumptions, developing freebody diagrams of the physical model, applying the conditions for equilibrium, and utilizing vector and linear algebra methods in their solution. The student shall learn to present problem solutions in a well-organized, neat, and professional manner. 3. Statement of Course Outcomes The following outcomes from ABET a k apply to this course: (a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering (e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems 4. Outline of Course Content and Learning Objectives The course consists of four main topic areas; Linear and Vector Algebra, Particle Equilibrium, Rigid Body Equilibrium, and Engineering Applications. The learning objectives for each topic area are presented below. Objectives for Linear and Vector Algebra The objectives are to introduce the student to methods for obtaining the solution to a system of linear equations. Also, the student will be introduced to the algebra of vectors. Upon completion the student shall be able to: 1. Write a system of linear equations in the matrix form Ax = b. 2. Determine whether a system of linear equations has a singular solution, no solution, or an infinity of solutions. 3. Evaluate the determinant of a matrix by the methods of cofactor expansion and duplicate columns. 4. Solve up to three linear equations with three unknowns using Cramer s Rule. 5. Solve up to six linear equations with six unknowns by using the Gauss-Jordan elimination method and elementary row operations. 6. Add, subtract, and multiply matrices and determine the inverse of a matrix by using the adjoint formula and augmented matrices and row reduction. M Th 2

3 7. Find a unit vector associated with a line segment, or force vector, and be able to compute the scalar product and cross-product of two vectors and the scalar triple product of two vectors. 8. Obtain the solution to a system of linear equations by the methods stated above. Objectives for Particle Equilibrium The objectives are to introduce students to the vector nature of concentrated forces, representing force in Cartesian vector form, and determining the resultant of a system of concurrent forces. The student shall be introduced to Newton s Law of Gravitation and its application to problems in physics and engineering. The student shall also be able to apply the first condition for static equilibrium (force balance) to systems of concurrent forces acting on particles. The student will be introduced to the concept of modeling a physical system for mathematical analysis by the use of a free-body diagram and formulating the system of linear equations that represent the given system which will lead to the solution of the problem. After completion the student will be able to: 1. Work problems in either the SI or U.S. Customary systems of units. 2. Determine the resultant of a system of concurrent forces and determine the components of a force by using the Parallelogram and Triangle Law. 3. Determine the unit vector associated with a force and express the force in Cartesian unit vector form. 4. By using the scalar product of two vectors, determine vector components in any arbitrary direction and the angle between vectors (dihedral angle). 5. Determine completely the resultant of a two- or three-dimensional system of concurrent forces. 6. Sketch a model of the physical system using a free-body diagram to represent the system, place the forces in a Cartesian coordinate system, and specify the sign conventions to be used. 7. From the first condition for equilibrium (force balance) formulate the governing equations for a two-dimensional or three-dimensional concurrent force system and obtain the solution. Objectives for Rigid Body Equilibrium The objectives are to introduce the concept of moment of force, Varignon s theorem, force couples, the vector cross product, the triple scalar product, and equivalent force systems. After completion the student will be able to: 1. Use Varignon s Theorem (the theorem of moments) to calculate the moment effect of a force. 2. Calculate the vector cross product term by term and also by evaluating the corresponding determinant and interpreting the resulting moment vector (i.e., understand the right-hand rule). 3. Calculate the scalar triple product and interpret the resulting scalar quantity. M Th 3

4 4. Calculate the value of a couple and state its magnitude and direction and be able to state the properties of couples. Couples will be calculated by both scalar and vector methods. 5. Replace a force by a force and couple for a single eccentrically applied force and also for a system of forces. Objectives for Engineering Applications The objectives of this unit are to enable the students to calculate the external and internal reactions to external forces and couples acting on beams, structures, frames, or machines. Additional objectives are to introduce the student to the effects of friction on physical systems and to enable the student to calculate centroids for planar bodies. After completion, the student shall be able to: 1. Sketch, within reasonable scale and proportion, the model of the physical system using a free-body diagram for applying all forces and couples and determining the force and moment reactions for pins, bearings, cables, struts, and built-in reaction points. 2. Determine the external reactions to the external loads placed upon rigid bodies, such as beams, truss structures, and frames. 3. Analyze a truss structure to determine the internal reactions in the truss members due to the external loading and verify that the design is stable. The truss analysis will use the method of joints and the method of sections. 4. Analyze frame structures to determine external reactions to external loads and the resulting internal forces. 5. Analyze non-rigid devices classified as machines to determine mechanical advantage and pin forces due to the input loading and the corresponding output forces. 6. Determine the forces required for motion to impend or whether motion will take place given the friction coefficients for the contact surfaces using the Coulomb Friction Law. 7. Apply the Coulomb Friction Law to determine slip or tip conditions and how to position the applied forces to prevent tipping. 8. Determine centroids of regular areas by the method of composite areas 5. Instructional Methods, Course Requirements, Evaluation Techniques The pre-requisite knowledge for students entering this course of study consists of satisfactory completion of traditional secondary-school courses in physics, algebra, trigonometry, and geometry. This is a problem-solving engineering course. Theory, illustrative problems, and methods in problem solving will be presented. The course will be delivered in a studio format which will allow students to interact with the instructor, teaching assistant, and each other in the problem-solving time allotted to each class. Problems will be assigned as homework related to the topics discussed in class. Hence, attendance is expected for each meeting of the class. As an introductory course in engineering that emphasizes problem solving methodology, it is necessary for the student to understand the underlying theory, simplifying assumptions, and the limitations and degree of accuracy of the resulting computations. A student s progress, learning, and productivity will be assessed by class attendance and participation, homework, in-class assignments, periodic exams, and a comprehensive final exam. To minimize distraction during M Th 4

5 the studio sessions, and thus enhance the learning process, the usage of laptop and desktop computers is prohibited. The lowest 2 HW assignments and 4 CA will be dropped. 6. Determination of Final Grades The grading system shall consist of the following components: Exams %* Homework 20% In-Class problems 5% Final examination 25% TOTAL 100% *The highest of the three tests will be worth 20% The final numeric grade for the course work will be computed from the components on the basis of 100 as a perfect score, and will use the grade modifier system outlined in the Grading System section of the Rensselaer Catalog. Generally: Letter Grade Range A [94 - A- [90 94) B+ [87 90) B [84 87) B- [80 84) C+ [77 80) C [74 77) C- [70 74) D+ [67 70) D [60 67) F - 60) A schedule for all three exams and make-ups is found at the end of this syllabus. The date and time for the final exam will be announced later in the semester when it is scheduled by the Registrar. Note that tests start at 8:00 not at 9:00 as listed on the SIS. Two grade-challenging sessions will be held after each exam, except for the final exam. If there is a legitimate reason for missing an original examination, the student will be allowed to take the make-up (the student must present to the professor in charge of the section a note from the Dean of Students office). There will be no making up for missed make ups for whatever reason. Class attendance is expected and there will be no make-up for problems assigned during a class session. A grade of zero will be given for each missing homework or in-class problem assignment. M Th 5

9 12. Minimum Requirements for a Complete Exam Problem Solution For all exams given during the semester, the minimum requirements for a complete exam problem solution are provided below. Students should adhere to these requirements to ensure that they receive the maximum credit possible. For any problem related to statics, the solution should contain: Appropriate sketches of the problem as needed. Specifically, in many static problems one or several free body diagram(s) (FBD) are necessary, with the number and characteristics of these FBDs depending on the problem. Each FBD should include: (a ) coordinate system (labeled) ; b) all forces and moments (with unique identification) ; and c) full definition of geometry (i.e., location of points and/or distances between points, angles, etc.) The governing equations (i.e., equilibrium of forces and moments) Correct use of vector notation throughout (clearly distinguishing scalar quantities from vector quantities) For any problem involving linear algebra, the solution should contain: All intermediate work (e.g., elementary row operations should be shown) For all problems, the solution should always contain: A final result which is enclosed within a box. When applicable, this final result should include appropriate units. M Th 9
