In the module Dynamics I, students will become familiar with the basic relations and principles of movement and action of forces between rigid bodies.
The module deals with following areas :
- kinematics and dynamics of a particle,
- kinematics and dynamics of a body,
- kinematics and dynamics of a mechanisms,
- basics of technical vibration.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The students will acquire the knowledge of the fundaments of the mass particle, rigid body and mechanism motion with respect to the acting forces.
The students will understand the terms from dynamics and the patterns of the motion.
The students will be able to apply the knowledge for the solution of specific technical problems.
The students will learn to analyze the state of the mechanical structure from the motion point of view.
