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

Lecturer
- Diogo Gomes Almeida Chambel Lopes

Prerequisites
Not applicable.

Objectives
This course is organised into two parts:
- The first part (a follow-up of Applied Mechanics I) deals with static mechanics including analysis of external forces on structures and machines, friction and inertia.
- The second part deals with kinematics

Program
1. Forces on beams, structures and machines
2. Friction
3. Moments of inertia
4. Kinematics of rigid bodies
5. Planar motion of rigid bodies

Evaluation Methodology
Two tests (50% + 50%) or exam (100% of final grade)
