Knowledge and ability to understand:
through the lectures held during the course, the student will acquire the skills necessary to describe the dynamics and vibrations of machines and mechanical systems and to understand their modelling and analysis criteria. The student will also learn the principal methodologies to obtain analytical and numerical solutions also through practical applications of interest for mechanical engineering.
Applying knowledge and understanding: through practical exercises, the student will learn how to apply the acquired knowledge in a real design context. The students will be involved, in groups, in a year's project that will allow them to extend and apply, through practical activities, the theoretically acquired knowledge.
the student will be able to understand and critically evaluate the main problems related to vibrations of mechanical systems. In particular, the student will be able to choose the appropriate modelling methodology to predict their behaviour, evaluating the computational performance and accuracy of the selected solution.
through the lectures and the year's project, the student will acquire specific vocabulary related to the course. It is expected that, at the end of the course, the student will be able to communicate, in oral and written form, the main contents of the course, e.g. ideas, engineering problems and related solutions. The student will be able to communicate his/her knowledge adequately and understand and use common tools, such as tables, schemes, and software.
the student who has attended the course will be able to enhance his/her knowledge through the autonomous consultation of specialized texts, scientific or popular magazines, technical catalogues, etc., to deal with more complicated problems and be prepared for his/her chosen career or further specific training courses in the same field
