Course detail

Supporting Structures of Machines I

FSI-QN1Acad. year: 2018/2019

The course familiarises students with the theoretical basis of structural mechanics calculation methods applicable in the design of supporting structures of building and preparation machines and plants in transport and handling engineering. Its aim is for students to get a particular picture of the tension and deformation state of the arbitrary point of the supporting structure. The course addresses the problems of the structures deformations, statically indeterminate problems, moving loads of structures, solution of thin-walled bars, principles and applications of the final elements method in the field.
