(b) Statics. Analytical and graphical treatment of statics, including measure- ment of plane areas ; graphical integration and differentiation; first and second moments of area, centroids, centres of gravity, friction; co-planar and non-co-planar force systems ; forces in framed structures; shear force, thrust and bending moment diagrams.

developments, past, present, and future.
DRAWING OFFICE WORK. Four hours per week throughout the year, entailing the solution of problems relating to sections (a), (b), (c) and (d) above.
Students must procure the following set of drawing requisites before the course commences :
1. Set of drawing instruments.
Engineers should obtain a good set as it will be constantly required throughout the course and probably after graduation.
The set must contain:
Compasses—with pen and pencil attachment, and extension arm.

3. Celluloid set squares.
One 10 in. adjustable set. square.
One 60 degrees set square, 10 in. size or larger.
4. One celluloid protractor 5 in. diameter or larger—preferably full circle type.
5. One French curve.
One 12 in. Armstrong or engineer's scale, graduated } in., } in.
,} in 1 in., $ in., } in.,
1}in., 3 in. to the foot.
One 12 in. scale, graduated g; in., -glg in., ,ain., and mm. units.
One 12 in. "chain" scale graduated 20, 40, 80, 100 parts to the inch (decimal) .
7. Pencils—good quality drawing pencils.
F (2 required), H (2 required), 4H and 5H or 6Н.
Also set of coloured pencils (6 colours).
8. One hard eraser, one artgum, one eraser shield.
9. One small fine file (5 in. smooth warding file) or sand-paper block.
10. Indian ink. Pen and nibs (303 Gillott).
11. One roll of drafting tape.
