PEDRINI ANDREA (titolare) - 5 ECTS
ROSSO RICCARDO - 1 ECTS
Prerequisites
Linear algebra, calculus, ordinary differential equations.
Learning outcomes
The objective of the course is to provide a basis for the analytical modeling of problems in mechanics, including elementary problems in continuum mechanics.
The expected result is to earn the capability to apply analytical methods to basic aspects of statics of structures.
Course contents
The course aims at illustrating the role of mathematical modelling in structural mechanics; special emphasis is given to statics and equilibrium stability. Topics: Tensorial algebra; Differentiable curves in space; Systems of applied vectors; Inertia; Kinematics; Lagrangian dynamics; Equilibrium of mass-point systems; Equilibrium stability; Stratics of one-dimensional continua.
Teaching methods
Lectures, Exercise Classes, and Tutoring.
