All course correspondence should filter through the emails above.
Correspondence is encouraged but to ensure a prompt response, you are expected to put “ENSC 2113” in your subject line. Homework questions that might be more time sensitive should be asked during office hours.
School of Architecture: 405-744-6043
Online and on-campus (if desired) office hours will be scheduled.
TA hours and various tutoring hours are TBA and will be posted on D2L
Engineering Mechanics: STATICS, 14 th
Ed., Hibbeler, R. C., Prentice Hall,
New Jersey, 2016. Also, you will need a MasteringEngineering code for online homework.
Course ID: ENSC2113SUM16.
The online homework code may be purchased
with an etext option, too.
Course information (syllabus, due dates, homework, etc.) may be found at oc.okstate.edu
PHYS 1114 or 2014 (Physics 1) and MATH 2144 (Calculus 1). If you haven’t successfully completed these courses, see your advisor immediately. You will be dropped from the course.
Ability to place forces into component form
Ability to draw free-body diagrams
Ability to determine support reactions for single and multi-member systems
Ability to calculate internal forces, including: axial (tension and compression), shear, and bending moment
Ability to calculate static friction: slipping, tipping, and wedges
Ability to calculate section properties: cross-sectional area, centroids, and moment of inertia
ABET student outcomes that will be assessed for this course include:
(a) An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, & engineering.
(e) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
The homework problems are to develop proficiency in the analysis of various types of force systems.
The student is expected to have a good working knowledge in Physics
and Calculus, as well as develop the ability to analyze various types of force systems. Principles of equilibrium are important in many engineering courses in the curriculum. This course builds upon itself through the semester, thus students must not fall behind in the course.
The University’s Academic Integrity Policy will be upheld in this and every course, and it is the responsibility of every student to abide by this policy. Any violation of this policy will be dealt with according to policy requirements without exception. Refer to the syllabus attachment.
All examinations will be closed book and notes, with approved calculators only. Please refer to the approved calculator list.
Cell phones and other unapproved electronics are not allowed.
Failure to abide by this policy will result in academic integrity procedures. Exams occur on the dates indicated in the course schedule
– you must have your exam administered by an approved proctor on these dates. Exams are not compreshensive and will be weighted evenly. No exam re-grades will be considered after one week of return. Contact Engineering Distance Education for the
Proctor Qualification Agreement. http://ceatde.okstate.edu/proctorqualification-agreement
Only in exceptional circumstances (such as documented illness, death in the family, etc.), will an absence from a scheduled exam be excused.
Documentation must be provided. Not knowing or oversleeping is not an excuse.
If a student has been excused from an exam, they will take a comprehensive exam in addition to Exam #4 on the last day of the summer term
– July 28, 2016.
In order to be excused from an exam, the student must submit, as early as possible, a written explanation and justification for the absence, together with any documentation (physician’s note, Athletic department request, etc.) This note should also have the student’s name, ID number, the date submitted, and must be signed by the student.
Students must supply their own pencils and calculator. Calculators must conform to the NCEES specifications for the FE exam. The approved list may be found at http://ncees.org/exams/calculator-policy/
Casio fx-115 models, HP33s and HP35s, TI-30X and TI-36X
Homework will consist of two components:
Homework on D2L:
Two homework problems will be uploaded as one file to
D2L’s Dropbox by the due date and time. The PDF file name should include your last name and assignment number. As an example,
. All homework must be worked by hand on engineering paper which is available at bookstores. Work is to be presented on one side of the paper and there is to be only one problem per page, using the faint line side of the engineering paper to work problems. Late homework will not be accepted without consent of the instructor. Penalties are given for homework that does not follow the required format. Homework is not to be copied from a solution manual and will result in zero credit or noted as an academic integrity violation.
Homework on MasteringEngineering:
One online problem will be due per set that will be submitted on masteringengineering. www.masteringengineering.com
Online quizzes will be administered on D2L and are scheduled on weeks that do not contain a scheduled exam
– please refer to the course calendar.
In calculating your final grade for the course, the following percentages will be used:
Homework & Quizzes
Final grades will be based on the following percentages:
A = 90 to 100
B = 80 to 89
C = 70 to 79
D = 60 to 69
F = Below 60
Student Disability Services will coordinate with students to provide independence and academic progress. Please contact their office directly for assistance. Exam accommodation requests must be received one week in advance of the exam for consideration. http://sds.okstate.edu/
