    Syllabus
    Applications of the Equations of Static Equilibrium to Interacting Bodies or Parts of a Structure; Systems Containing Multi-force Members; Frames and Machines
    In this section, students will learn the applications of the equations of static equilibrium to interacting bodies or parts of a structure. Students will learn about systems containing multi-force members, frames, and machines.

    Plane Trusses
    In the section students will learn about Truss structures, specifically method of joints, method of sections, and zero force members.

    Space Trusses; Shear Force and Bending Moment Diagrams
    In this section students will learn about space trusses and will be introduced to shear force and bending moment diagrams.

    Cable Support Systems
    In this section, students will learn about cable support systems, specifically concentrated loads and suspension loads.

    Coulomb Friction and Belt Friction
    In this section students will learn about coulomb friction and belt friction.
