Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To acquaint students with the fundamentals of collision and impact theory. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st Analyse the fundamental relationships of the stroke/Impact theory. 2nd Teach students how to solve the task on collision and impacts 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 calculations of the technical, impact machine and mechanical engineering object collisions.
