|Prerequisite for taking the course is to submit and defend semestral assignments. Prerequisite for taking the exam is to get a positive grade.
|Enable understanding of important laws and methods of Mechanics, with emphasis on statics. Develop creativity and ability to understand, formulate and solve engineering problems independently.
|Student is able and competent to analyze and solve problems of mechanics of deformable body and systems of plane frame and truss structures.
|Introduction. Fundamental terms. Bernoulli-Euler hypothesis. Reference strains of the beam axis. Thermic strain. Section forces. Coordinate transformation. Differential equations of equilibrium. Solution procedure. Independent kinematic and strain quantities. Elements of a structure. Static classification. Compatibility conditions. Kinematic classification. Structural analysis of statically determined structures. Solution methods. Basic types of structural systems. Simple beam, cantilever, three-hinged arch, three-hinged arch with imaginary hinge. Gerber girders. Frames. Trusses. Energy of deformable systems. The principle of minimum potential energy. The principle of virtual forces. Calcualtion of generalized displacements. The principle of virtual displacements. Kinematic method. In-plane kinematics of rigid bodies.
|Interactive lectures and exercises with work on individual assignments. Consultations.
|Evaluation and grading
|It is compulsory to solve and defend 2 project assignments during the semester. The projects must be submitted and defended by the start of next semester. If the students do not pass colloquiums during the semester, they can take correctional colloquiums during the regular examination period.
