Learning Outcomes
The students - will understand and caclculate the mutual interaction of loadings (external loads/ reactions) in mechanical constructions - will calcualte internal loads (forces, moments) that develop witin the construction elements in dependence on the external loads - will undestand friction phenomena and calcualte the interaction of forces that take place in contacted surfaces of constructions.
