#3 in Subjects > Engineering > Mechanical Engineering

This course is an introduction to learning and applying the principles required to solve engineering mechanics problems. Concepts will be applied in this course from previous courses you have taken in basic math and physics. The course addresses the modeling and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an emphasis on real world engineering applications and problem solving.

Syllabus

Forces and Particle Equilibrium
In this section, students will learn the definition of a force and how to represent a force as a vector in two (2D) and three (3D) dimensions. Students will learn the concept of particle equilibrium and equilibrium of systems of particles. Concepts will be reinforced with example problems.

Define and Calculate Moments
In this section, students will learn the definition of a moment. Students will calculate the moment of a force about a point, line or axis, and moment due to a couple.

Equilibrium and Equivalence of Force Systems
In this section, students will learn the equilibrium equations in two (2D) and three (3D) dimensions. Students will solve equivalent system problems. System force results will be defined and calculated.

Free Body Diagrams and Equilibrium Analysis Techniques
In this section, students will learn to analyze general equilibrium problems. Free Body Diagrams (FBD) will be defined. Concepts will be reinforced with example problems.

Application of Static Equilibrium Equations
In this section, students will apply the equilibrium equations to solve two (2D) and three (3D) real world engineering problems. There will be an extensive use of example problems to reinforce concepts from the course.

It was a great experience to do this course with Dr. Wayne E. Whiteman ( from Georgia Institute of Technology-a great institute too), I highly recommend these types of courses, at least you summarize the important ideas, and get familiar with e-learning.

pros:

1-abbreviated, time effective learning

2- Dr Whiteman has easy to understand language besides straight forward attitude of explaining subjects

cons:

1- I found the course to be a little easy (it's just an introduction as stated)

2- I hope to see like more animation or real life videos.

last word, thanks for all (class-central website,Georgia Institute and Dr Whiteman), you for sure will not waste your time here.

best regards

I took this to learn basic fundamentals principles right as I took mechanics of materials first. This one covers statics. It's up to anyone to decide their sequence of study but grasping basics is important to mastering of more advanced concepts later as long as one doesn't get fogged out. As with all videos produced with Dr Wayne, the high quality video productions are interspersed with quiz exercises to challenge one's own learning pace. The delivery in the video production made effort to engage and relate to the interested beginner.

Dr. Whiteman is outstanding at explaining the concepts he is teaching. He doesn't breeze through the material, but rather really explains how and why I can and should learn the material. I only completed parts of his courses, only because engineering is not the field I'm in and I keep getting pulled away from consistent and continuous learning. Dr. Whiteman's lectures are some of the best I've seen on the various MOOC sites, and I hope to come back to them soon.

I honestly can't understand this course having such a low rating. Unfortunately, several of the one-star reviews are by morons that either dropped the course or found it too difficult.

Coming from a metallurgy background, I did not have a lot of mechanical engineering training. This course was excellent both as a math refresher and a relatable approach to simple applications

Hi Team, although I never finished this unit, I will come back and complete it.

Life just got in the way. Having said that as an instructor in my day to day life I found the method of teaching and the way it was delivered to be world class. If you are interested in Engineering... this is a great starting place.

Overall a good course. The material is covered slowly in increments, which makes it quite easy to follow along. Concepts are presented in an easy-to-understand way. There are a couple of mistakes in the videos, but they have been annotated, so there is no real confusion. I would recommend his course to people wanting to learn about Mechanics!

Dr. Whiteman is really good at conveying complex concepts and formulations in simple, easy to understand languages, and the demos and real life examples make the class very interesting. I would highly recommend Dr. Whiteman's online courses to everyone who is interested in pursuing mechanical engineering as his/her profession.

Hello there!

I am Roboticst with CS and Electronics background. I had a lot of problem communicating with fellow roboticts when I would discuss something related to mechanics of a robot with them. The great thing for me is, that I am becomin able to communicate well enough with the mechanical engineers on team now.

I am a high school teacher who wanted to review some engineering principles before teaching the ideas at the secondary level. Engineering is being taught in more and more high schools across the country. This is a great way to build your background knowledge that will make your own class better.

I could understand and keep up with the teacher but I wouldn't recommend it as a beginner's course as the teaching was very sub standard in terms of explanation of details of concepts. It was as if a revision and a strengthening course for people that already understand the material

I particularly liked Professor Whiteman's teaching style. He often presented more than one way of solving a problem. For example, in his lectures on moments and cross products he gave us both the right-hand rule and the i-j-k cycle, each useful in different frameworks.

Well explained and well thought out. However, instead is solving the same kind of problem over and over again, different ones should be explored. Moreover, just the examples being solved was insufficient; practical examples should have been provided.
