This course is an exploratory, foundational course in civil/ structural engineering designed primarily for students in Building Technology Department. However, it is also been offered by all the students in Engineering Departments with some modification in the content under the heading of CVE 202-Strength of material. Mechanics is a branch of the physical sciences concerned with the state of rest or motion of bodies that are subject to action of forces. It can be subdivided into rigid body mechanics, deformable-body mechanics and fluid mechanics. This course will take care of the first two subdivisions; it provides necessary background and knowledge needed for analysis and design of structural buildings and frameworks. Rigid body mechanics could be further divided into statics and dynamics; statics deals with equilibrium of bodies that is those that are either at rest or move with a constant velocity whereas dynamics is concerned with the accelerated motion of bodies. Strength of materials is concerned about the internal effects of forces acting on a body. The body themselves will no longer be considered to be perfectly rigid as was assume in statics instead the calculation of deformations of various bodies under a variety of loads will be one of our primary concern. Topics to be covered include introduction to mechanics and design of building structure; forces, moments, stress and strain; Properties of structural sections. Friction, energy, shear force and bending moments using graphical and mathematical derivations; Kinetics of particles and rigid bodies; Newtonâ€™s laws of motion, impulse, momentum, energy and power; stresses, deflection, strain, loading, stiffness design of beams, columns, buckling of slender columns.
This course provides opportunity for students of Chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, engineering, food science and technology and geology to collect the appropriate data required to define the properties of gases, liquids, solids and colloidal dispersions, to systematize them into laws, and give them a theoretical foundation. The course is also useful in establishing the energy relations obtaining in physical and chemical transformations, in ascertaining the extent and speed with which they take place, and in defining quantitatively the controlling factors. Topics to be covered include Kinetic theory of gases; behaviour of real gases; critical constants and liquefaction of gases; heat capacities of gases; principle of equipartition of energy; first and second laws of thermodynamics; enthalpy, entropy and free energy; reaction and phase equilibria; reaction rates; rate laws; zero, first and second order kinetics; experimental determination of reaction orders; mechanism and theory of elementary processes; photochemical reactions; basic electrochemistry.
This course is designed for a semester in Fortran Programming language for undergraduate Computer Science, Mathematical Science and Engineering students. The course covers general concepts and introduction to Fortran Programming with Fortran 03 (or Fortran 2003). Fortran 03 contains all of the features of the later version Fortran 77/95 needed to write complete and workable Fortran programs. Even though the course may not, in to full details, give everything the students need, it covers the basic features needed to be a good Fortran programmer and an introduction to the important new features of Fortran 03. This course has found profound and significant applications in Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and other related fields.
Importance and scope of agriculture. Land and its uses with particular reference to agriculture. Introductory crop production. Agricultural ecology of Nigeria. Agronomy of some arable crops. Land preparation. Harvesting, processing and reservation method. Farm tools and machinery including tractor driving and by-products. Basic farm management techniques. Fisheries and wildlife production. Forest products. General introduction to livestock production and health.
The objectives of this course are to: ï‚· Introduce students to basic engineering mechanics ï‚· Provide students with opportunities to develop their knowledge of applied Mechanics.
This course is a compulsory course designed for students in engineering disciplines to acquire quality knowledge in the area of materials science and engineering. Materials are the bedrock of Engineering. Therefore it is important that all students in the various discipline of engineering be fortified with adequate knowledge of the course. The course shall span through structure-property-application relationship of materials with respect to mechanical behaviour of materials, electrical properties of materials, optical and magnetic properties of materials, materials and there interference with the environment among others.
Basic fluid mechanics is a distinct and separate branch of engineering mechanics, designed primarily for every student in School of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SEET) and Food Science Technology (FST) in the School of Agriculture and Agriculture Technology (SAAT). Its development has also been stimulated, of course, by a wide range of applications of theories of fluid flows, dynamics and hydrostatic forces of fluid engineering and technology, as well structured practical classes required for a solid foundation in fluid mechanics. However, it also meets the need of students in other fields, as a course that provides hands-on training in the use of computers for word processing and preparation of slides for presentation. Topics to be covered include; definition and properties of fluid, elements of fluid statics, hydrostatics forces on submerged surfaces due to incompressible fluid, conversion laws, fluid dynamics, viscous flows.
This will involve field planting. Each student will be allocated a field plot for the planting and management of an arable crop. Students will be exposed to practical work in animal production and health, fisheries and wildlife management, and crop and forestry nurseries.
The strength of a material, whatever is its nature, is defined largely by the internal stresses, or intensities of force in the material to carry external loads. Knowledge of these stresses is essential to the safe design of a machine or any type of structure, which in some cases may consist of complex arrangements of many component members. This course is concerned with the study of structural and machine members under the action of external loads. Analysis is directed towards the determination of the limiting loads the member can withstand before failure of the material or excessive deformation occurs. It is a practical course designed and made compulsory for all engineering students to impart and equip them with useful skills to analyse structures which they will encounter later in life. Topics to be covered include Force equilibrium, Free body diagrams, Elasticity â€“ concept of stress and strain, tensile tests, youngâ€™ module and other strength factors, axially loaded bars, temperature stresses and simple indeterminate problems, hoop stresses; stresses in cylinders and rings, bending moment, shear force and axial force diagrams.
This course is designed primarily for all engineering students and students of engineering related courses. It provides a comprehensive knowledge and insight into engineering drawing as a basic tool of engineering. Topics to be covered include:Further projection of solids. First and third angle projections.Isometric projections.Intersection of surfaces and developments. Sectional views, Curve of interpenetrations. True lengths and true shapes.Parts and assembly drawings.Preparation of working drawing for manufacturing in accordance with standards. Reading and interpretation of manufacturerâ€™s drawing of equipment.
This course is an introductory course to all other thermodynamics-based courses; it is very useful for students in all forms of engineering because itâ€™s a foundation course for engineers in all disciplines. However, it also meets the need of students in other hard science related fields, as a course that provides the basic introduction to the three solid state of matter. The principles are introduced so that a clear understanding of the basic issues related to thermodynamics are well understood As a practical course, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to give them a total reorientation of engineering challenges they find within their environment
This course is the first course in numerical analysis designed for students in mathematics, physical sciences, engineering, mineral and earth sciences.
