AMEC 306 - Applied Mechanics I

Course Description:
In Applied Mechanics I, you will explore the practical application of mechanics in the power plant; their application to turbines, compressors, pumps and other machines. You will study statics and dynamics, centripetal and centrifugal force, friction, lifting machines, work, power and energy. You will also investigate the strength of pressure vessels, first moments, second moments, centroids, shearing and bending; torsion, mechanical efficiency; shaft couplings, modulus of elasticity; modulus of rigidity; and strength of materials.
