This course introduces students to the quantitative and qualitative descriptions of the fundamental physical principles used in construction and architectural design. Topics include vectors, forces, static equilibrium of point particles and rigid bodies, torque, center of gravity and moment of inertia, stress-strain relationships, torsion and shear stress, as well as some basic electrical principles, such as Ohm's Law, power and resistor circuits. Applications to construction and design will be discussed. This course must be completed with a grade of "C" or higher.
Prerequisite: MTB 1329 with a grade of "C" or higher or prerequisite/corequisite: MAC 1114 or higher level mathematics course with a grade of "C" or higher.
