Engenharia Mecânica
5 ECTS; 1º Ano, 2º Semestre, 15,0 T + 45,0 TP + 3,50 OT

Lecturer
- Carlos Alexandre Campos Pais Coelho

Prerequisites
Not applicable.

Objectives
Provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge to the modeling of real problems of Mechanics Physics.
Provide an introduction to the Static equilibrium.
Determine Centroids and Centres of Gravity
Examine structures and machinery.

Program
1. Statics of Particles: plane and space forces.
2. Rigid Bodies: Equivalent Systems of Forces (Two- and three-dimensional).
3. Equilibrium of Rigid Bodies.
4. Distributed Forces, Centroids and Centres of Gravity.
5. Analysis of structures.

Evaluation Methodology
Continuous evaluation:
The final grade (NFinal) is calculated considering the exams grades (NProvas) and individual coursework (NTrab.):
NFinal=0,75xNprovas+0,25xNtrab or only NProvas
Final grade: Written exam

Bibliography

Method of interaction
The theoretical concepts will be presented in classroom with the aid of audiovisual media. Worksheets will be resolved in class.
