CES Mechanics IWebteam CATS
Lecture “CES Mechanics I” is a mandatory course in the first semester of Bachelor study program “Computational Engineering Science”
Lecture: Prof. Marek Behr, Ph.D.
Exercises: Thomas Spenke, M.Sc., Stefan Haßler, M.Sc.
This lecture covers two semesters and is held only for Computational Engineering Science students. In the first semester, the focus is on statics. Here everything is still in equilibrium. After a short introduction to vector calculus, we go ahead with the main topics.
The module consists of a lecture with 2 SWS and an exercise with 1 SWS, and carries 4 ECTS points. An optional hands-on exercise with 1 SWS is also offered.
- forces and moments, couples
- resultants, distributed loads
- static equilibrium, free body diagrams
- multi-body equilibrium
- trusses, method of joints, method of sections
- internal forces in beams and frames
- friction, tipping, rolling resistance
- numerical solution of statics problems
