Objectives Fundamental laws and methods in dynamics of rigid and deformable bodies and in strength of materials
Subject The lecture Engineering Mechanics 2 is concerned with dynamics and strength of materials of material bodies and their application to engineering systems. The topics

  • Balance of linear momentum and moment of momentum (rigid and deformable bodies, moment of inertia, Euler's equations, local balance equations)
  • Energy-based methods (work, energy and power theorems, potential energy of forces and force field)
  • d'Alembert's principle (rigid and deformable bodies, principle of virtual work, Gibbs principle)
  • Linearized elasticity (fundamentals, linear elastic body, Hooke's law, Navier equations)
  • Yield criteria (von Mises, Tresca)
  • Bending of straight beams (differential equation, principle of virtual forces, force method, transfer matrix method)
  • Eigenvalue problems (buckling of straight rods, natural vibrations of beams)
  • Selected solutions of linearized elasticity (St. Venant torsion, discs)

are treated in detail.
