Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Implement an engineering approach dealing with a set problem taking into account technical, economic and environmental constraints
    • Identify and acquire the information and skills needed to solve the problem
  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in arts, science, engineering and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic artistic, scientific and mathematical principles
    • Select and thoroughly apply knowledge, methods and tools in arts, sciences, engineering sciences and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines

Learning Outcomes of UE

To understand and get familiar with the elements, principles and basic theorems of Kinematics and Statics (equilibrium of forces and energetic methods) of mechanical systems composed of rigid bodies and material points.
To solve classical but original problems of Statics and Kinematics, from an adequate reasoning and a rigourous application of the laws addressed during the course.
To understand the basics of Kinetics (translational and rotational momentum, kinetic energy, inertia tensor)
To draw MNV (bending moment, normal force, and shear force) diagrams in isostatic systems of beams.
To understand the related mathematical elements: vector calculus, systems of linear equations, differential calculus, and trigonometry.
To develop intuition and physical feeling with respect to mechanical phenomena.

Content of UE

Force, moment of a force, torque, reduction of systems of forces (centers of mass).
Statics of mechanical systems: applied forces, joint forces, Coulomb's law, equilibrium conditions of  material points and rigid bodies, fundamental problem of Statics.
Equilibrium break (separation or sliding).
Applied Statics: MNV diagrams in beams.
Point kinematics: position, velocity, acceleration, motion reference
Kinematics of the rigid body: velocity and acceleration fields, theorem of derivatives composition, planar case (Kennedy's theorem, graphical kinematics).
Kinematics of mechanical systems: joints, composition of movements.
Energetic methods of Statics: principle of virtual work/power, conservative systems and minimum of potential energy.
Kinetics (twist-momentum), kinetic energy, inertia tensor, second order tensors.

Students may have during the exam a formula reminder of max a face of a A4 sheet, and containing only formulas.
For theory, the students are allowed to read their course notes during 10 minutes, but mustn't write anything.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q2

  • Written examination

Q2 UE Assessment Comments

The written exam lasts max 4 hours et has a weight of 100% of the mark. It consists of a question of theory (30% of the mark) and several exercises.
Students may have during the exam a formula reminder of max a face of a A4 sheet, and containing only formulas.
For theory, the students are allowed to read their course notes during 10 minutes, but mustn't write anything.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q3

  • Written examination

Q3 UE Assessment Comments

The written examination lasts max 4 hours and is unique for the whole course of Theoretical Mechanics (learning activity "Statics and Applied Statics" and "Kinematics and Energetic methods of Statics") and has a weight of 100 % of the mark.
The exam comprises a specific question of exercise related to the learning activity "Statics and Applied Statics" (1st quadrimester), with a weight corresponding to the one of the quadrimester.
The exam comprises a specific part related to the learning activity "Kinematics and energetic methods of Statics", with a question about theory and several exercices, with a weight corresponding to the one of the quadrimester.
The students may have a formula reminder, of max 1 face of a A4 sheet, containing only formulas.
For the question about theory, the students may read their course notes during 10 minutes, but mustn't write anyhing.
