Theoretical mechanics (Solid Mechanics or Statics) is a course concerned with the equilibrium of forces acting on a body. There are two principal problems to study:

  1. Replacement of a system of forces acting on a body by an equivalent system of forces.
  2. Deduction of the general conditions in which a solid, under the action of applied forces, remains at rest or in uniform rectilinear motion.

Statics aims at making students familiar with problems on reduction of system of forces and problems on equilibrium of bodies and systems of bodies (hinged girders, three-hinged systems, trusses).
