Abstract:

The course represents a link-up between the theoretical mechanics of rigid bodies and engineering disciplines dealing with stress and strain analysis of real structure parts (elasticity, plasticity, fracture mechanics, etc.). Principles of statics, kinematics, and dynamics and their application.
