Annotation Accidental processes play an important role in nature. The poor quality of the road pavement, which is the unevenness of a casual nature is the reason for railway car and autotransport dynamic load. These factors are taken into account at the process of vehicle design. We should be able to measure these factors and evaluate them..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
State random function theory methods of calculating fluctuations in the system vehicle mechanics. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st Measure and evaluate the quality of the road pavement; 2nd solve the statistical mechanics tasks; 3rd Provide mechanical stress calculation methods.
