Attendance of this module requires fluent spoken and written English as a necessary pre-requisite: all lectures and tutorials, and all study material will be in English. It is assumed that students taking this subject already have knowledge and understanding of analytical and applied mechanics and of fundamental of differential and integral calculus.

Credits 6: 60 classroom hours (39 lecture hours, 21 tutorial hours). Theoretical lectures are supported by examples and applications. Lectures on a section of the syllabus will be followed by specific tutorials, where students are required to apply knowledge to working context problems. The tutor will provide materials and frames for solutions. However, students are asked to interact with the tutor, especially when setting the solution. The tutor will assist students during the tutorial class hours, supporting students in their learning progression and clarifying their doubts. Attendance to both lectures and tutorials is strongly recommended, being vital to achieve the expected learning outcomes. Neither intermediate formal checks of the learning process nor reports on projects are programmed. The teacher and the tutor are available weekly during the teaching period in order to meet students for consultation; please contact them by e-mail.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
Assessment Achieved learning outcomes will be assessed by means of a final exam. This is based on an analytical assessment of student achievement of the “expected learning outcomes” described above. In order to properly assess such achievement, the examination consists of a written test only, lasting 1 h and 30 min indicatively, with closed book and composed of three questions: the first is an exercise similar to those proposed during the tutorial; the second is focused on one of the topics seen during the lectures; with the third the students are required to apply the methodologies explained in the subject to some new application or machine. The exam aims at evaluating the ability of the students to model the dynamic behavior of mechanical systems, starting from the model definition and ending with the system analysis. In particular, the first part of the test assesses the ability to apply knowledge, while the second and third parts aim at assessing knowledge, communication skills and ability to use tools and method taught in the lectures for solving problems not directly proposed in the class hours. Grading criteria The maximum obtainable mark is 30/30 with merit (cum laude). Each answer to the three questions usually is evaluated from 0 to a maximum of 10 or 11 points, for a total of 32 available points. During the semester, students are given an example of the final test, with discussion of the solution and hints on common errors and evaluation criteria. A few days after the written test, students are summoned for a review of the written output, in which examiners inform the students on grading criteria, and receive any student appeal supported by appropriate explanations. Computers, mobiles, electronic devices and any printed documentation are not allowed.
