Learning Outcomes
Development and application of approximate analytical methods (e.g., method of finite elements) for the solution of problems involving determination of dynamic and vibrational response of mechanical systems with complex geometry or nonlinear characteristics.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Work in an international context
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Generate new research ideas
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
Dynamic analysis of two dimensional structural elements (membranes, disks, plates). Classical approximate methods in structural dynamics (Rayleigh, Rayleigh-Ritz, Galerkin method, assumed mode method). Method of finite elements (geometric discretization, derivation of mass and stiffness matrix and excitation vector for single-dimensional elements, coordinate transformation and assembly of global matrices). Nonlinear oscillations and stability of dynamical systems: free oscillation, self-excited oscillations, external, parametric and internal resonance. Applications: dynamic response of machines, mechanisms, vehicles and other complex mechanical structures and systems using finite element codes.
