Mechanical system dynamics

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.

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.

**Modalità di esame:** Prova scritta a risposta aperta o chiusa tramite PC con l'utilizzo della piattaforma di ateneo Exam integrata con strumenti di proctoring (Respondus);

Mechanical system dynamics

The online exam consists of a written test, for a maximum of 33 points. The exam is considered sufficient when the score obtained is at least 18 points. The online exam is based on EXAM platform, with the simultaneous use of Respondus proctoring, and has a duration of 70 minutes, taking into account the additional time for the authentication on the exam platform. The test is composed of both multiple-choice questions, counting and two exercises. All the questions are freely accessible for all the test duration. Pocket calculators are admitted. In analogy to the past traditional sessions, students have to answer each question by producing the equations, demonstrations, schemes and diagrams relevant to develop the answers, writing on white A4 paper sheets. When explicitly required by the question, students should upload one or more pictures (taken using the PC webcam). The photos have to clearly framing what is required by the text of the question only. If the required pictures are not uploaded, or if their quality is insufficient, the relative answer is marked with a score of zero. For this reason, students are requested to take great care in answering to the parts requiring a direct upload, in a tidy and precise manner. The required parts are expressly requested to be written on dedicated A5 paper sheets and to be photographed via the webcam during the examination. Only photos and numerical values inserted in the appropriate fields have value for marking purposes. Within 15 minutes from the end of the exam, students must upload (mandatory) a complete scan in PDF format of all the material regarding the two exercises, including A5 papers (clearly readable, taken by any means, i.e. cell phones) on the section “Elaborati” of the course page of the “Portale della didattica”. Any other means of sending copies of the exam is forbidden (NO emails!). In case no material is uploaded within the required deadline, the exam will be considered null and registered as fail (“respinto”). The uploading time of the file on the teaching portal will be checked. The last page of the written exam is used to write Withdrawn, in case of this choice. In this case, no uploading phase of the pdf file is required on the section “Elaborati” of the course page of the “Portale della didattica”. At the end of the exam evaluations, the marks will be published on the teaching portal. The methods to view the online exam will be indicated together with the publication of the mark.
