Course contents:
Lectures: 28 hours on systems of forces, decomposing and combining forces, moment of a force, resultant force, distributed forces, equilibrium and conditions of equilibrium, plane trusses, beams and hydrostatics. To illustrate the topics in practice, 56 additional hours of calculation exercises with homework are included, where several selected problems will be solved in cooperation/through discussion with the students.
Learning outcome:
You will learn to understand and use basic principles in statics, will be able to mathematically calculated forces on simple constructions due to loads from externally applied loads, the weight of construction elements themselves, wind and water. 
Learning activities:
Lectures that cover central ideas and theories of statics with a focus on systems of forces, decomposing and combining forces, moment of a force, resultant forces, distributed forces, equilibrium and conditions of equilibrium, plane trusses, beams, friction and hydrostatics. In the calculation exercises, the student will solve mathematical practice exercises on topics covered in the lectures. The problem-solving can include both analytical solving and numerical solving using a computer.

Corresponding courses can be found at NTNU and some of the other universities and university colleges in Norway, and will be approved by acceptance to a higher course level. The course is compulsory for technology students at AUN.
The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidate¿s exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
Allowed examination aids: Calculator handed out, no other aids
Examination details: One written exam: A - E / Ikke bestått
