Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To acquaint students with the fundamentals of technical fluctuations. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st Analyse the fundamental relationships of the discrete and distributed system vibrations. 2nd Teach students how to solve the task on oscillations and vibrations applying the computer programs. 3rd Improve students' knowledge of physics related to the fields of vibrotechnics and vibromachinery 4th Teach students the skills required to be proficient in the calculation of the vibration of the technical and engineering facilities.
