Annotation Accidental processes play an important role in nature. Swell causes the dynamic movements of ships. 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
To acquaint students with the fundamentals of mechanics. In order to achieve this aim the following tasks should be fulfilled: 1st Analyse the fundamental relationships of the kinematics, statics and dynamics. 2nd Teach students how to solve the task on mechanics applying the computer programs. 3rd Improve students' knowledge of physics related to the field of mechanics. 4th Teach students the skills required to be proficient in the calculations of the machinery, construction machinery and engineering facilities.
