Learning outcomes of course unit

Students are able to:
• indepdently analyse physical problems in the area of dynamics, develop solution methods and work out solutions.
• reduce technical systems of mechanical nature to their underlying physical principles.
• apply mathematical procedures to solve physical problems.
• identify problems in technical plants on their own, develop physical models for solutions and give assessments on the feasibility of physical procedures.
• explain, present and pass on knowledge gained.
