Engineering Mechanics and Types of Engineering Mechanics - Mechanical Education

Engineering Mechanics:


Engineering Mechanics: Engineering mechanics deals with the static and dynamic properties of an object or a body are under motion or in rest. by this application of mechanics helps to find real-time problems. By applying the Engineering mechanics on real-time experiments having knowledge about physics and math can help to find the reaction of the object in advance when they applied to some force or at equilibrium state.Engineering Mechanics mostly depends on the force applied and motion of the object.Application of Engineering mechanics in advance help to find the state of an object it may be liquid or solid.

Types of engineering mechanics:

Based on the state of the object (liquid or solid) Engineering mechanics are divided in to.
1. Static and
2. Dynamic

1. Static:

When the engineering mechanics deals with the static condition object or a body, it is considered under free from force. i.e: the body does not undergo any external force and it includes negligible force on it.

2. Dynamic:

When the engineering mechanics deals with the dynamic state of the body or an object it is under some external force on it and it is in motion which is not in rest. i.e When some force acts on the liquid it tends to flow or when a sold object is in motion there is an external force acting on it.

The dynamic state is further divides into two different types:

1. Kinematics and
2. Kinetics

1. Kinematics:

When the motion of the object or a body is considered by its velocity, displacement, etc it is said to be in kinematics state. At this state engineering mechanics deals with the irrespective of external force on the object.


2. Kinetics:

When the body is subjected to some external force and leads to motion it is said to be in a kinetic state. At this point, engineering mechanics consider the external fore acting on the object.
