Learning outcomes
The course emphasis on the theoretical basis of the discussed concepts and derivation of basic relations and relations between concepts. In addition, students gain advanced knowledge in certain topics focusing on the use of related courses in the theoretical basis of studies and master's degree. Mastering the creation of mechanical and mathematical model of the dynamics of basic mechanical system planar and spatial analytical methods of solution. Mastering oscillating systems with two and three degrees of freedom.
Students will gain a broader theoretical background in the field with the ability to derive basic relationships. In addition, students will gain advanced knowledge in some thematic areas with a focus on the use in the following courses. After completing the course, students will be able to build a mechanical and mathematical model of dynamics of mechanical planar and spatial systems together with solution of oscillating systems with 1 and 2 degrees of freedom.
basic knowledge of mathematics and physics, skills to solve mathematical equations

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam, Seminar work

During the semester, 3 seminar works with solution of 3 examples that correspond to the type of examination. Solving of examples required both in the form of a written solution and in the form of a Matlab program. Solution procedure and results checked by the tutor. Understanding of the topic within the frame given by the plan. Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes: credit: attendance of seminars, min 75%, passing the test to min 75%. exam: passing the test min 75%, proof of knowledge at the oral exam min 75%.
