Mechanics is the physical science that deals with the effects of forces on objects. Mechanics can be divided into three main branches: rigid-body mechanics, deformable-body mechanics, and fluid mechanics. This course is an introductory level course on deformable-body mechanics.The objective of this course is to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and principles employed by engineers - whether civil, mechanical, aeronautical, etc. - in the design of structures of all sorts, sizes and purpose.
