The course addresses the topics of mechanics that are a necessary part of the basic education of a mechanical engineer. Starting from the knowledge acquired by the student in the Physics courses, the objective of the course of Applied Mechanics is to provide the students with the necessary knowledge to properly address and solve engineering problems relevant to the mechanics of rigid bodies. The syllabus of the course will include: - Description of the mechanics of rigid bodies and of the forces acting upon them. - Presentation of the main characteristics of mechanical drives and of their individual components, such as Hooke's joints, belt drives, gears and gear trains, power screws, clutches, brakes, bearings. - Outline of the basics of mechanical systems dynamics with particular emphasis to the mechanical vibrations. The course of Applied Mechanics links the description of the physics underlying the behaviour of mechanical drives and their components to the methods instrumental in solving engineering problems such to enable the students at the end of the course to properly address problems relevant to the mechanical systems and to the transmission of the mechanical power from a prime mover to an operating machine.

The objective of the course is to develop the ability of the student to identify the problems relevant to rigid bodies mechanics, mechanical drives and mechanics of vibrations, to address them with a scientifically correct approach and to solve them with sound engineering methods in order to perform an effective functional design of mechanical systems.

Tutorials: Are proposed exercises relatively on the topics, with the assistance of teaching staff and the solutions will be developed in classroom. Solutions will be also shown on the web page of the course. Laboratory: Experimental measures of efficiency of speed reducers and belt transmissions. Each team of students will prepare a final report of the results to deliver at the teachers before the exam.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
The exam is aimed at ascertaining the knowledge of the topics listed in the official program of the course and the ability to apply the theory and the relative methods of calculation to the solution of exercises. The exam will be only in the written form. Normally will be assigned three problems inherent the total program (lectures and training). The time of the examination is normally 2 hours. The exam is succesful if the mark is at least 18/30. During the exam it is forbidden to use notes, books and exercise sheets. The test results will be posted on the portal with the date in which the students can see their tests and ask for explanations.
