Parts 1
Annotation Ways of transferring/shifting hard objects, liguids, loose and other materials, the physical and mechanical issues of their transfer. Desing and exploitation of the machines used in the agriculture, processing industries (mainly food, woodprocessing, construction materials) and service industries (mainly cargo transit, transport, seaport )..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To acquaint students with the calculations and design of the lifting and transporting machines. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st Analyse the fundamental relationships of the kinematics and dynamics of lifting equipment. 2nd Teach students how to solve the task on lifting equipment applying the computer programs. 3rd Improve students' knowledge of technology related to the lifting and transporting machinery. 4th Teach students the skills required to be proficient in the assessment of the machinery, construction machinery and engineering facilities.
