About Course
Statics is the most fundamental course in Mechanics.
In this Statics course, you will learn the conditions under which an object or a structure subjected to timeinvariant (static) forces is in equilibrium – i.e. the conditions under which it remains stationary or moves with a constant velocity.
You will also learn how to calculate the reaction forces as well as the internal forces experienced throughout the structure so that later you can properly design and size the foundation and the members of the structure to assure the structureâ€™s safety and serviceability.
This course is suitable for learners with an interest in different Engineering disciplines such as civil engineering, architecture, mechanical engineering, aerospace.
Nonengineering disciplines may also find the course very useful, from archaeologists who are concerned about the stability of their excavation sites to dentists interested in understanding the forces transmitted through dental bridges, to orthopedic surgeons concerned about the forces transmitted through the spine, or a hip or knee joint.
