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. A report on a group project has to be prepared during the course. No intermediate formal checks of the learning process are programmed. Tutors are available weekly during the teaching period in order to meet students for consultation; please contact them by e-mail. Credits 8: 80 classroom hours (56 lecture hours, 24 tutorial hours).

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Group project;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test; Group project;
Achieved learning outcomes will be assessed by means of a final exam (weight 70%) and by the evaluation of the group project activities developed during the course (weight 30%). This written part is based on an analytical assessment of student achievement of the “expected learning outcomes” described above. The examination consists of a written only test, duration 60 min, closed books. In order to properly assess such achievement, the exam is composed of two questions focused on the topics seen during the lectures. The written exam aims at evaluating the ability of the students to deal with the dynamic behaviour of vehicle systems, starting from the model definition and ending with the system analysis. In particular, the test aims at assessing knowledge, communication skills and ability to use tools and method taught in the lectures for analysing and modelling vehicle dynamics. The maximum obtainable mark is 30/30 cum laude. During the course, 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 student on grading criteria, and receive any student appeal supported by appropriate explanations. Further details on exam rules are given on the official course website.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.

This written part is based on an analytical assessment of student achievement of the “expected learning outcomes” described above. The examination consists of a written only test, duration 1 h 30 min, closed books.

Further details on exam rules are given on the official course website. Computer-based written test with open questions using the Exam platform and proctoring tools (Respondus); The online exam consists of a written test, similar to the one foreseen for onsite exams. The online exam is based on EXAM platform, with the simultaneous use of Respondus proctoring, and has a duration of 60 minutes, taking into account the additional time for the authentication on the exam platform. The test is composed of two open problems. All the questions are freely accessible for all the test duration. In analogy to the traditional exams, 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”. The methods to view the online exam will be indicated together with the publication of the mark.
