Topic outline

  • Welcome to the Spring 2021 MEC-E1005 course! General information on the course can be found from the video below or from these slides. Also see below the instructions for downloading the software needed etc.

    (pdf version of the schedule can be found below)

    Please enroll to the course as soon as possible!

    During this project course, students develop understanding on (1) modelling in applied mechanics, (2) use of some of the most common numerical solution methods in mechanics, (3) experiments on real structures, and the interplay of (1), (2) and (3) in engineering work. Most projects are related with displacement, vibration, and stability analyses of toy structures or structural parts but projects on rigid body dynamics and Arctic technology may be also offered. The course also includes practice on scientific writing and support for the writing, as the students write technical reports on the measurements and modelling.

    After the course a student will be able to: (1) Apply the principles and methods used in problem solving in the field of applied mechanics, (2) use some of the most common numerical modelling tools on solving typical mechanical engineering problems and (3) perform a critical evaluation, potential validation, and analysis on the correctness of the modelling results.
