Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

ability to analyze behaviour of systems of bodies

Teaching methods



The subject deals with kinematic and dznamic analysis of open and closed kinematic chains from the point of view of investigation of relationships between the force acting and thier movement. The principal method is application of a matrix calculus.
