Level of study: 1.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
- written exam from equilibrium of a body in 3D and three theoretical questions;
- elaboration three tasks from equilibrium of a body, system of bodies and the trusses;
- assessmet of the protocol from the laboratory seminars.
During the term student must obtain minimal 12 points from written exam and its activity during the seminars (maximal points is 20).
The exam has two parts: written and oral. The written exam contains three theoretical questions three practical problems for solution. The questions are evaluated from 10 points to 15 points so, that the sum is maximal 80 points. Logical mistakes are evaluated by 0 points. Classification evaluation of the students: A (87-100) points, B (81-86) points, C (71-80) points, D (64-70) points, E (55-63) points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
In engineering mechanics, you will learn to construct and to solve mathematical models which describe the effects of a force and motion on a variety of structures and machines that are of interest for engineers. Applying the principles of mechanics we formulate these models, incorporating appropriate physical assumptions and mathematical approximations. In both, the formulation and solution of mechanical problems, frequently you will have opportunity to use the knowledge of plane and solid geometry, scalar and vector algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, numerical mathematics and calculus. Indeed, you are likely to discover new applications of these mathematical tools as to use it in mechanics.
Engineering mechanics -- Statics will teach you to understand, logically explain and to justify a lot of your everyday activities. Applications of the concepts learned in your personal activities will allow you to make things more safely, more effectively and better result will be reached. A logical access to the study of the Engineering me-chanics will make your study at the universities of technology easier. Engineering mechanics is an excellent tool for development of creative thinking and effective communication between other engineering subjects.
Course contents:
This subject contains the properties of forces, moments, couples and resultants, which are developed so that the student may proceed directly to the equilibrium of nonconcurrent force system without belaboring unnecessarily the relatively trivial problem of the equilibrium of concurrent forces acting on a particle. The concepts and categories of distributed forces, which characterized the centroids, mass centers and centers of gravity are introduced at the next part of statics. The category of distrib-uted forces includes the special topics of beams, flexible cable and fluid forces. Application of equilib-rium principles to simple trusses and to frames and machines is solved too. Special occasion is given of the friction where is characterized the phenomenon of dry friction and application on selected ma-chine. This subject presents too a consolidated introduction to virtual work with application limited to single-degree-of-freedom systems. Special emphasis is placed on the advantage of the virtual-work and energy methods for interconnected systems and stability determination. The kinematics of the particle and body is lectured, too.
