After passing the course, the student can:
- analyse the motion of a system of masses and rigid bodies in terms of forces, accelerations and velocities
- analyse the motion of a system of masses and rigid bodies using second law of Newton and the principle of work and energy
- calculate the eigenfrequency of an elastically supported rigid body
This is a part of Module 8, ID M8 Virtual Product Development of the Bachelor Industrial Design Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module|
The course provides an overview of elementary dynamics. The topic of interest is the two-dimensional motion of (systems of) point masses and rigid bodies. Included are the kinematics, derivation of the equations of motion using the Newton-Euler equations and by drawing correct free-body diagrams, the principles of conservation of linear and angular momentum and energy, derivation of the mass moments of inertia and an introduction to mechanical vibrations.
