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.
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.
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 and graphic solving.
The lecturer is available for questions outside the structured lecturing time, and can be reached by e-mail.
An overview will be handed out at the first lecture. Book Meiam and Kraige Engineering Mechanics Statics.
Written examination: 3 hours.
Lectures with homework: approx. 60 hours. Exercises with homework: approx. 90 hours. Total 150 hours.

Lectures: 28 hours. Calculation exercises: 56 hours.
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 candidates exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
