Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Particle dynamics in accelerating systems. Particle system and rigid body mechanics.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to:

  • identify a concrete mechanical problem, and choose suitable mechanical models based on a problem description,
  • translate the mechanical model into a mathematical model,
  • mathematically treat the problem and critically analyze the significance of the result,

in order to use a physical mindset and communicate this within the framework of engineering science contexts.
