Aim of course

Acquirement of fundamental principles of kinematics and statics of solids and fluids in consistent description. Application to fundamental problems of statics of structures and hydrostatics. Development of practice-oriented problem formulations and computational methods.

Subject of course

Kinematics: Point Kinematics, Kinematics of Rigid Bodies, Kinematics of Deformable Bodies. The Continuity Equation. Statics: Forces, Force Density, Stresses, Systems of Forces, Equilibrium, Statics of Simple Structures: Beams, Trusses, Flexible Cables. Mechanical Work. Power. Potential Energy. Principle of Virtual Work: Example: The Three-Hinged Arch. Influence Lines of Statically Determinate Structures. Conservative Mechanical Systems. Hydrostatics: Fluid Under Gravity. Pressurized Fluids. The Gravitational Hydrostatic Pressure on Walls of Open Containers. Uplift. The Hydrostatic Buoyancy. Moments of Inertia of a Plane Area and their Rules of Transformation. Objectives: Acquirement of fundamental principles of kinematics and statics of solids and fluids in consistent description. Application to fundamental problems of statics of structures and hydrostatics. Development of practice-oriented problem formulations and computational methods.
