Engineering Mechanics

Engineering Mechanics is semester 1 subject of final year of computer engineering in Mumbai University. Objectives of the subject Engineering Mechanics is to familiarize the concept of equilibrium and friction. To study and analyze motion of moving particles/bodies.

Outcomes of the subject Engineering Mechanics Learners will be able to Illustrate the concept of force, moment and apply the same along with the concept of equilibrium in two and three dimensional systems with the help of FBD. Demonstrate the understanding of Centroid and its significance and locate the same. Correlate real life application to specific type of friction and estimate required force to overcome friction. Establish relation between velocity and acceleration of a particle and analyze the motion by plotting the relation.  Illustrate different types of motions and establish Kinematic relations for a rigid body. Analyze particles in motion using force and acceleration, work-energy and impulse momentum principles. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction. Dry friction is a force that opposes the relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact. Dry friction is subdivided into static friction (“stiction”) between non-moving surfaces, and kinetic friction between moving surfaces. With the exception of atomic or molecular friction, dry friction generally arises from the interaction of surface features, known as asperities.  Fluid friction describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other. Lubricated friction is a case of fluid friction where a lubricant fluid separates two solid surfaces. Skin friction is a component of drag, the force resisting the motion of a fluid across the surface of a body. Internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation.
