ING-IND/13 (APPLIED MECHANICS FOR MACHINERY)
DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL,COMPUTER AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
1st semester (27/09/2021 - 21/01/2022)
53 lesson hours
WRITTEN AND ORAL TEST
Suggested: Applied mechanics; Structural mechanics, Numerical analysis
Applied Mechanics module - This course introduces the undergraduate student to the methodologies and techniques for Diagnostics of mechanical systems with particular focus on the numerical solution of engineering problems. The acquisition of a good familiarity with analysis and data processing with special software will be one of the aims of the course.
Topics covered include: a) Introduction to signal analysis and data processing with Matlab: - the course introduces the student to the fundamentals of dynamics,simulation and identification of mechanical systems by using computational tool Matlab (de facto standard software for technical computing). We start from elementary algebraic operations and proceed to matrix eigenvalue problems and modeling of continuum systems. b) Diagnostics of mechanical systems; elements theory and applications: - inverse problem in mechanics and application to simple examples with Matlab. Introduction to data processing techniques; locking on controlled parameters for diagnostic purposes. Modeling of problems and interpretation of numerical results. Application to simple engineering structures and to biomechanics.
