Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is that the student shall assimilate the description of motion given by Newtonian mechanics and learn to apply it to situations appearing in engineering.

After the course the student shall be able to

  • analyse situations occurring in mechanical engineering.
  • perform calculations of quantities of importance in mechanical engineering.
  • plan and perform laboratory work in mechanics, and present the results orally and in writing.

Content

Dimensions and units in mechanics. The concepts of force, force moment, momentum, angular momentum and moment of inertia and their application in the Newtonian description of translational and rotational motion. The concepts of work, power, kinetic (translational and rotational) and potential energy and their application in the description of motion using the law of energy. Special application: Vibrations.

Instruction

Lectures, lessons and laboratory work.

Assessment

Written examination (4 credits). Laboratory work (1 credit).
