Static Mechanics and Energy Methods

In the SMEM course we have discussed about two major topics: Static Mechanics and Energy Methods. Find two examples (one per each topic) which use a combination of the concepts discussed in the course. Use diagram/photo to clarify the system you have chosen and explain the function of the system/component/part/assembly. Show your knowledge in using the relevant equations for analysing the behaviour of thesystem.• Problem 1: Static Mechanics– Vector mechanics– Stress-strain– Centre of mass– Beam analysis• Problem 2: Energy Methods– Pressure measurement (manometers)– 1st law of thermodynamics– 2nd law of thermodynamicsI would prefer examples from the automotive industry (car related)
