FUNDAMENTALS OF MECHANICS (UNIT 1)
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Knowledge and understanding: Students will acquire the basic knowledge of the lows of static, kinematics and dynamic, along with the transmission of motion and forces in simple mechanisms.
Skills: analyzing the basic mechanisms and laws of motion. simple dynamical systems analysis.
Making judgments: one of the objectives of the course is to introduce the mechanical designer, who is able to analyze and draw a required functionality in an efficient and economic design.
Learning skills: the student will develop the ability to critically analyze simple mechanisms.
Communication skills: to present and discuss the basic problems of applied mechanics.
