The main target is to indicate to students the way to apply the concepts discussed in the course on Theoretical Mechanics.
CA1: Applying knowledge and understanding related to problem identification and formulation of solutions, in the field of mechanical engineering, to set up, design, implement and verify systems and apparatus, even of high functional complexity, taking into account the implications related to environmental, economic and ethical aspects, employing well established methods.
CA2: Applying knowledge and understanding related to the analysis and optimization of mechanical devices and systems, as well as to their innovation also through the development and improvement of design methods, constantly confronting with the rapid evolution of mechanical engineering.
CA3: Applying knowledge and understanding related to the choice and application of appropriate analytical and modelling methods, based on mathematical and numerical analysis, in order to better simulate the behavior of components and plants in order to predict and improve their performance.
CA12: Applying adequate knowledge and understanding to understand English texts.
CC1: In-depth knowledge and understanding of the theoretical-scientific aspects of engineering, with a specific reference to mechanical engineering, in which students are able to identify, formulate and solve, even in an innovative way, complex and/or interdisciplinary problems. The ability to understand a multidisciplinary context in the engineering field and to work with a problem solving approach
CC3: Knowledge, understanding and use of scientific (computer and other) tools specific to the field of mechanical engineering design.
