This unit introduces Newtonian physics concepts governing the behaviour of stationary engineering systems. To determine design parameters, you will study forces applied to two and three-dimensional bodies under the static equilibrium state. You will determine internal forces, calculate support reactions, and develop Free-body, Shear Force and Bending Moments diagrams. You will also calculate sectional properties, including the center of gravity, centroid, and second moment of inertia. Upon completing this unit, you will understand the foundations of engineering statics enabling progress to advanced system/structural analysis and development of sustainable infrastructure

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –
in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory.
International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
