Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The students will acquire the advanced knowledge of the laws and rules of the motion of mass objects under acting forces, especially the solution of the complicated motion of the body and mechanism. The special emphasis to the technical vibration. The students will understand the rules and laws of the dynamics of bodies and mechanisms and technical vibration. The students will learn to apply the acquired knowledge to solve the technical problems. The students will learn to analyze the state of the mechanical structure from the aspect of the force - motion relation and other consequences. The students will learn to categorise the problems, connected with dynamics, to formulate and develop the tools for solution. The students will learn to evaluate the character of the technical problem, to decide the solution, to recommend, explain and defend their solution proposals, to predict the system behaviour after intervention.

Teaching methods
