Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes
Learning Outcomes of UE
Understand the basic principles of Dynamics (correlation between forces acting on a mechanical system and its motion).
Apply these principles, in a rigorous and rational modelling process, in the context of industrial or every day life examples (resonance, balancing, gyroscopic effects,...).
Strengthen the intuition with respect to problems involving the relation between forces and motion.
Content of UE
Kinetics of rigid body; d'Alembert's principle; general theorems of Dynamics. One or two degree of freedom vibrating systems: free or forced response, resonance, frequency response. Dynamics of rigid body: balancing, gyroscopic effects.
Prior Experience
<em>Trigonometry; planar and space geometry; Algebra: resolution of a set of linear equations, matrix calculus, eigenvalues and eigenvectors; differential calculus: resolution of differential equations, Laplace transform, </em> Kinematics and Statics (force equilibrium and energetic methods) of Mechanical Systems composed of rigid bodies and material points.
Type of Assessment for UE in Q1
Q1 UE Assessment Comments
<em>Exercise test of November: 20 % of the mark
Laboratory reports: 10% of the mark
Written examination: 70% of the mark</em> The written examination lasts maximum 4 hours and consists of a theory question and two or three exercises.
Students may have an autograph formula reminder, holding on a face of an A4 sheet and comprising only formulas.
For the theory, the students are allowed to consult their course notes during 10 minutes (without writing) after reception of the question.
Type of Assessment for UE in Q3
Q3 UE Assessment Comments
The mark fully issues from a written examination which lasts maximum 4 hours and consists of a theory question and two or three exercises.
Students may have an autograph formula reminder, holding on a face of an A4 sheet and comprising only formulas.
For the theory, the students are allowed to consult their course notes during 10 minutes (without writing) after reception of the question.
