A student may contract for an independent study through an arrangement with an instructor who agrees to direct such a study. The student will submit a plan acceptable to the instructor and to the department chairperson. The instructor and student will confer regularly regarding the process of the study.
This course covers AC circuit analysis beginning with the study of sinusoidal steady-state solutions for circuits in the time domain. Nodal, loop and mesh methods of AC circuit analyses and the Thevenin, Norton and Superposition theorems are applied to the complex plane. AC power, transformers, mutual induction, three-phase circuits and two-port networks are introduced and used for analysis. Laplace and Fourier Transforms and the Fourier Series are applied to circuit analyses.
This Calculus-based course covers DC circuit analysis including voltage, current, resistance, power and energy. Circuit analysis techniques and Kirchhoff's laws are applied to series, parallel and complex circuits. Thevenin, Norton and Superposition theorems are applied to DC circuits. Operational amplifiers are introduced. Inductance and capacitance are introduced and the transient response of RL, RC and RLC circuits to step inputs is studied using differential equations.
A student may contract for one to six credit hours of independent study through an arrangement with an instructor who agrees to direct such a study. The student will submit a plan acceptable to the instructor and to the department chair. The instructor and student will confer regularly regarding the process of the study.
This course is a calculus-based study of advanced concepts in Mechanics of Materials. It addresses the behavior of deformable mechanical components when subjected to tension, compression, torsion, flexure/bending or a combination of these loads. Extensive use is made of free body diagrams as well as Mohr's Circle for stress and strain. Experience is gained in the analysis of beam deflection, shafts in torsion, power, column buckling and thin walled pressure vessels.
Dynamics at the intermediate level. Kinematics and kinetics of particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies and mechanical vibrations. Force, mass, acceleration, work power and energy, impulse and momentum. Calculus and vector mathematics are employed throughout.
ENGR 3254 with "D" or better Co-requisite(s): MATH 4114
This calculus-based circuit course follows the generic Systems Dynamics course with in-depth coverage of techniques for the analysis of linear electric circuits. Simplification and formal procedures for resistive circuits containing independent and dependent sources. Time-domain and frequency domain analysis of first and second order circuits containing energy storage elements. AC steady state, power and three phase circuits. Magnetic coupling and transformers. Passive and active filters. Laplace transform, state variable and computer aided analysis and testing.
A unified engineering treatment of the elements of systems dynamics. The intent is to use a common methodology regardless of physical discipline. Included are mechanical and electrical systems. Also included are system excitation, mathematical and modeling of physical systems and linear system responses. System stability and responses will be studied using classical techniques and Laplace transforms. The laboratory will include electronic simulation of physical systems as well as analog and digital computer models of independent and coupled first and second order systems.
Statics at the intermediate level. Equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies in two and three dimensions, centroids, and centers of gravity, analysis of structures, friction, area and mass moments of inertia. Calculus and vector mathematics are employed throughout.
The purpose of this course is to assist sophomore engineering science students in choosing and transferring to the college or university of their choice in order to complete a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Transfer admissions visitors are invited to classes and there may be class trips to potential transfer institutions depending on the interest of the students. This is a required course for the Engineering Science associate degree.
