Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learn measurement and evaluation of a dynamical physical values. Competention to review accuracy and applicability of mesured values for machine part calculation. Review influence of a noise and vibrations on a human.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


This subject pick up the threads of subject Technical experiment. The subject deals with a measuring of loading spectra, noise and vibrations of machines, especilly of geaborxes. The subject also deals with testing methods of a machines and of a machine parts from point of view of durability, and desing and operation of testing stands.
