MENG 231 ENGINEERING MECHANICS (3, 1) 3

PART-I: STATICS: Review of Vector Algebra; Principles of Mechanics; Free-Body


Diagrams; Static Equilibrium of Particles and Rigid Bodies; Distributed Force Systems.
Structures, Beams, Trusses, Frames, and Cables; Friction; Center of Mass, Centroid,
and Moment of Inertia.
PART-II: DYNAMICS: Review of Particle Dynamics; Free-Body Diagrams; Force,
Energy and Momentum Methods; Planar Kinematics and Kinetics of Rigid Bodies;
Energy Methods; Vibration Problems.
(PREREQUISITES: MATH 151, PHYS 101)
TEXTBOOK:
We will follow, Hibbelers Engineering Mechanics-Statics and Dynamics, 11th. Ed.,
Prentice-Hall as a textbook. Taking notes in class will be helpful for the Open-Notes-Only
Exams that you may have. Having a book, however, provides several additional
advantages.

TEACHING TECHNIQUES:
PowerPoint presentations and chalk-and-board (Dry-Marker) will both be used in classroom
presentations. Tutorials will be organized to establish a closer contact with students and help
enhance their problem solving capabilities.

MINIMUM STUDENT MATERIAL:


Assigned Textbook, a scientific calculator, binder for handouts and class notes, sufficient amount of A4 size plain papers or a notebook dedicated to this course only, and three pens/pencils of different
colours. The Class-Notes Binder will be collected together with your Final Exam and shall be graded.
You may take the binder back after it is graded.

6.
7.

TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH A CLEAR AND THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF


THE THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERING MECHANICS, COVERING BOTH
STATICS AND DYNAMICS; AND IN THIS CONTEXT;
TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE
CONCEPT, DRAWING, AND THE USE OF FREE-BODY DIAGRAMS (WHICH IS
ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL WHEN SOLVING PROBLEMS IN MECHANICS.)
TO PROVIDE A MEANS FOR DEVELOPING THE STUDENTS ABILITY TO FORMULATE
EQUILIBRIUM EQUATIONS;
TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH GOOD PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS;
TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS AND METHODS
OF STATICS AND DYNAMICS;
TO ENHANCE STUDENTS CREATIVITY AND IMAGINATION AS WELL AS
KNOWLEDGE AND SYSTEMATIC THINKING CAPABILITIES AS REQUIRED BY THE
ENGINEERING DISCIPLINE.
TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH SIMPLE DESIGN AND SAFETY IDEAS.

COURSE OUTCOMES:
THE STUDENT TAKING THIS COURSE WILL BE ABLE TO
1.

understand the basic principles of mechanics and to apply them to real-life problems or to new
situations.
draw free-body diagrams
formulate and use the equilibrium equations
identify the principles and equations that apply, and use them in solving static and dynamic
problems.
use the mathematical tools and the standard procedures as well as performing numerical
calculations.
analyze one, two and some three dimentional force systems and to determine the resultant of
force systems; including moments/couples, reactions, and internal loads.
develop equations of equilibrium and equations of motion, and solve these for forces and/or
different motion parameters, such as displacement, velocity, and acceleration of particles, rigid
bodies, and simple mechanical systems.

GRADING AND EVALUATION:


Class-Notes & Participation:
Homeworks and Assignments:
Quizzes:
Midterm(s):
Final Exam:

4%,
10 %,
16 %,
34 %,
36 %.

ATTENDANCE:
Attendance to lectures and tutorials are essential and expected. Attendance shall be taken. You must be there
to participate. If you miss more than one midterm/monthly exams and/or quizes or if your attendance record
is less than 75 %, your condition may be treated as Non-Gradable and shall receive an NG grade.

PLAGIARISM
This is intentionally failing to give credit to sources used in writing regardless of whether they are published
or unpublished. Plagiarism (which also includes any kind of cheating in exams) is a disciplinary offence and
will be dealt with accordingly.

ALL HOME WORK MUST BE PRESENTED ON A-4 SIZE WHITE-PLAIN PAPERS.


THE FIRST PAGE WILL BE THE TITLE PAGE, WHICH WILL INCLUDE: CODE AND
NAME OF THE COURSE, ASSIGNMENT NUMBER (SUCH AS HOMEWORK NO.2 ETC.),
STUDENT NUMBER & NAME (e.g. SUBMITTED BY # 981234 ALI BERK TANSAY) , AND
DATE DUE (e.g. OCTOBER 9TH. 2009, FRIDAY).
LEFT MARGIN 3.0 CM; RIGHT AND OTHER MARGINS AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM
MUST BE 2.5 CM IN WIDTH, AND NOTHING WILL BE WRITTEN WITHIN THESE
SPACES.
START EACH PROBLEM ON A NEW PAGE UNLESS IT IS A SHORT ONE. YOU DO NOT
HOWEVER NEED TO START FROM A NEW PAGE FOR DIFFERENT SECTIONS OF THE
SAME PROBLEM.
WRITE DOWN THE PROBLEM STATEMENT, COMPLETE WITH THE NECESSARY
SKETCHES, AND IDENTFY WHAT IS GIVEN AND WHAT IS TO BE FOUND.
EXPLAIN CALCULATION SEQUENCE IN WORDS (i.e., DO NOT SIMPLY WRITE DOWN
A SERIES OF EQUATIONS. DRAW THE NECESSARY FREE-BODY DIAGRAMS.
WHEN EQUATIONS ARE USED, EACH SYMBOL IN THE EQUATION NEED TO BE
DEFINED.
SHOW ACTUAL CALCULATED RESULTS TO SUFFICIENT DECIMALS BEFORE
ROUNDING OFF.
SHOW DETAILS FOR YOUR CALCULATIONS AND IDENTIFY (LABEL) YOUR
ANSWERS WITH A BOX. --NEVER SHOW A RESULT WITHOUT SHOWING THE
ALGEBRAIC SUBSTITUTIONS FIRST.
FOR ALL GRAPH AND VECTOR DIAGRAMS, LABEL THE AXES AND WRITE DOWN
THE SCALES USED AND UNITS FOR EACH PARAMETER.
USE UNITS CONSISTENTLY IN ALL YOUR ANALYSIS, FORMULATIONS AND
CALCULATIONS.
NUMBER EACH PAGE CONSECUTIVELY AND STAPLE ALL PAGES TOGETHER IN THE
PROPER ORDER.
YOU MUST AIM TO ACHIEVE NEAT, CLEAR, AND PROFESSIONAL LIKE WORK.

b. FORMAT AND COMPLETENESS = 20 POINTS;
c. CONCEPT AND APPROACH = 50 POINTS; AND
d. MATHEMATICS = 15 POINTS.

OTHER NOTES:

SOME EXAMS MAY BE OPEN-NOTES ONLY.

TAKING NOTES IN CLASS, THEREFORE, IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR BOOKS AND NOTES WITH YOU READY FOR ANY POPQUIZES. YOU MAY ALSO NEED A SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR, PENS/PENCILS AND
ERASERS AS WELL.

UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, EXCEPT THE GROUP-WORKS, INDIVIDUAL WORK


IS ESSENTIAL! YOU CAN ALWAYS STUDY TOGETHER, BUT YOU MUST SUBMIT
YOUR OWN HOMEWORK.

NO COPYING FROM OTHERS!

NO LATE SUBMISSION OF HOMEWORKS AND/OR ASSIGNMENTS!

HOMEWORKS WILL BE COLLECTED 5 (FIVE) MINUTES AFTER THE CLASS HAS


BEGUN. ANY ASSIGNMENT NOT IN THIS COLLECTION WILL BE CONSIDERED
LATE. ALL LATE WORK WILL RESULT IN THE FOLLOWING DEDUCTIONS:
o
LESS THAN 24 HOURS LATE = 50 % DEDUCTION;
o
OVER 24 HOURS LATE
= 100 % DEDUCTION.

IF YOU ARE TO BE ABSENT DUE TO ANY ACCEPTABLE REASON THE WORK MUST
BE SUBMITTED EARLY AND DIRECTLY TO THE INSRUCTOR.
