Course detail

Supporting Structures of Machines II

FSI-QN2Acad. 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.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures. Part of the course can be excursions to the companies, which manufacture or operate the equipments from the thematic area of education.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Comprehensive Examination for two semesters consists of written and oral. Written examination is evaluated by 50 points for the oral part is necessary to obtain at least 25 points. The oral part of the exam is evaluated independently and it is the evaluation of the same weight as the written part.

Language of instruction

Aims

The aim of the course is to extend the existing knowledge of mechanics and apply it to the problems of supporting structures of building and transport machines, it includes computer support.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Course-unit credit is awarded on condition of having attended the exercises actively and worked out assigned project (the displacement method), which follows the project from QN1. Presence in the exercises is obligatory.
