|ENGI 1010 - Engineering Statics. |
This is the first course in Engineering mechanics. Forces and moments are described with vector algebra, leading to a description of the equilibrium conditions for particles and solid bodies. The importance of free body diagrams is highlighted. This knowledge is then applied to the analysis of trusses, frames and machines. Additional topics include an examination of friction and the concepts of centre of force, centroids and second moments of area.
- Prerequisite: Level III Physics or Physics 1020 and Mathematics 1000 (which may be taken concurrently)
- Note: 1) tutorial (1 hour per week). 2) Credit may not be obtained for both Engineering 1010 and the former Engineering 1313
|ENGI 1040 - Mechanisms and Electric Circuits . |
This course is offered in two serial modules, including laboratory and workshop practice, and a team project to expose students to the concept of system integration involving electrical and mechanical systems. The electrical module provides an introduction to dc circuits, with an analysis of dc circuits used in control, measurement and instrumentation systems. The mechanism module provides an introduction to machine components such as belts, pulleys, gears, and simple linkages. The laboratory and workshop component introduces students to hands-on practice in basic laboratory instruments, tools and safety procedures. A team project involves the construction, assembly and testing of a simple mechanism.
- Prerequisite: Level III Physics or Physics 1051 (which may be taken concurrently) and Mathematics 1000 (which may be taken concurrently)
- Lab: 3 hour laboratory period per week
