About this Unit
This unit deals with the action and interaction of forces, moments and couples in two and three dimensions. It examines the equilibrium of single bodies, and of trusses and mechanisms. It then looks at the friction between bodies. It covers the dynamics of a non-rotating body, and a body rotating about a fixed axis. Finally, internal loadings are investigated, particularly within a transversely loaded beam. The unit makes extensive use of vector algebra.
