CIV1500 Applied Mechanics
Pre-requisite: ENG1500 or MAT1500
Current skills at the level of Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Maths A or equivalent assumed. Students cannot enrol in CIV1500 if they have successfully completed CIV1501.
This course integrates mathematical and physics concepts to provide students with introductory mechanics knowledge to prepare them for the course CIV1501 Engineering Statics. Topics included are: length, time, mass, Newton's laws, pressure, stress, moment, torque, work, friction, two dimensional position and force vectors, particle equilibrium, resultant forces, rigid body equilibrium, centroids and second moment of areas.
