:

A. Objective of the Course

Objectives of introducing this subject at first year level in all the branches are:

identification of different types of forces, systematic evaluation of effect
of these forces, behavior of rigid bodies subjected to various types of forces, at the state
of rest or motion of the particles, as Universe exist due to force only.

To unde
rstand

the fundamental principal
, concepts and techniques, both theoretical and
experimental, with emphasis on the application of these to the solution of mechanics
based suitable problems in all engineering.

To provide a firm foundation and formwork for more ad
vanced study at every higher
semester as the subject of Mechanics of Rigid bodies cuts broadly across all branches of
engineering profession.

D. Instructional Method and Pedagogy:

At the start of course, the course delivery pattern, prerequisite of the subject will be
discussed.

Lectures will be also
conducted with the aid of multi
-
media projector, black board, OHP
etc.

Attendance is compulsory in lectures and laboratory which carries a 5% component of
the overall evaluation.

Minimum two internal exams will be conducted and average of two will be consi
dered as
a part of 15% overall evaluation.

Assignments based on course content will be given to the students at the end of each
unit/topic and will be evaluated at regular interval. It carries a weightage
of 5
%.

Surprise tests will be conducted which carries 5% of the overall evaluation.

The course includes a laboratory, where students have an opportunity to build an
appreciation for the concepts being taught in lectures.

Minimum 8 experiments shall be there in
the laboratory related to course contents.

Minimum 6 tutorials which includes solution of minimum 5 numerical under each head.

E. Student Learning Outcomes

On the completion of the course one should be able to understand:

Students will able to understand

the laws of mechanics and their application to engineering
problem.

Student will be able to understand the fundamentals of stress/strain analysis and be able to
apply them with confidence to simple structure.

Fundamental related to subject will facilitate

students to design structures, predict failure
and understand the physical properties of materials in higher semester.
