The aim of the course is to introduce simple mechanical problems that occur in technical life, as well as present the concepts used there. In more details: in the field of statics of rigid bodies, it deals with operations with con-centrated and distributed forces, balancing, calculation of external and internal reactions, calculation of stresses and stress diagrams; in the field of strength theory, introduces the concept of loads, stresses, deformations, displacements and the relationship between them, with which simple problem (structural verification, dimen-sioning) can be performed; presents the concept of a material particle, the description of its motion (kinematics) and the relationship between the forces causing the motion and the motion itself (kinetics), as well as introduces the basic concepts of free and damped vibration (free vibration, excited vibration, resonance factor, resonance).

General Rules

A 2.2. pontban megfogalmazott tanulási eredmények értékelése két évközi írásbeli teljesítménymérés alapján történik. Az egyes zárthelyi dolgozatok időtartama 45 perc. Az 40%-nál gyengébb zárthelyi dolgozat sikertelen. Az értékelések pontos időpontját a tárgy honlapján elérhető "Részletes féléves ütemterv" tartalmazza

Retake and late completion

Valamennyi zárthelyi dolgozat egyszer javítható vagy pótolható a félév elején kijelölt időpontban. A pótzárthelyire a tárgy moodle oldalán keresztül jelentkezni kell A zárthelyin és javításon vagy pótláson elért eredmények közül a jobb eredményt vesszük figyelembe. Amennyiben a tárgyból a TVSz 122§(8) utolsó mondata szerinti pótlási lehetőséget kell biztosítani, úgy azt egy, a pótlási időszakban tartott, összegző típusú pótzárthelyi formájában teszi. Ezen a díjköteles pótláson csak azok vehetnek részt, akiknek addigi eredményük elégtelen és egyik zárthelyin legalább 40%-os eredményt értek el. E pótlás eredménye szolgál a féléves eredmény alapjául.
