Course evaluation:


In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

The courses Algebra, Calculus and Mechanics or equivalent competence.


The aim of the course is that the students are to attain knowledge of the basic principles and concepts of classical mechanics (mainly in dynamics), which is required for further studies in the field of mechanical engineering.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Describe the basic concepts and laws of classical mechanics (mainly dynamics).

  • Apply these laws and concepts in solving problems.

  • Describe the concepts of work, energy, linear momentum and angular momentum.

  • Formulate the mathematical model for a given dynamical system.

  • Carry out the analysis on problems of vibration.

  • Carry out the analysis for plane motion of rigid bodies, both for rotation about a fixed axis and for general plane motion.

  • Determine moments of inertia for various bodies.


The course contains both dynamics of particles and dynamics of rigid bodies. The main topics are: Kinematics of particles. Kinematics of systems of particles. Vibration and time response. Plane kinematics of rigid bodies. Plane kinetics of rigid bodies.


The course includes 35 lectures and one exercise in design.
