Prerequisites:

Calculus I
Physics
Linear algebra and geometry 
Target skills and knowledge:

To provide students with theoretical and computational tools needed to solve kinematic and dynamic analysis of mechanical systems. 
Examination methods:

The exam focuses on the entire program and consists mainly of a written test, which includes both numerical exercises and theory questions.
Approximately there are 23 exercises and 23 theory questions. Each exercise / question is associated with a score that appears in the exam track, so that the student can have an indication of the score he can reach.
The total duration of the written test is at least 2 hours.
The oral exam is only foreseen in three cases
a) If the result in the written test is 16 or 17/30. In this case, the student is given the opportunity to achieve sufficiency by an oral exam on the date indicated by the teacher.
b) If the student wishes to improve any sufficient mark obtained in the written test, even in this case the oral test must be sustained in the same appeal on the date indicated by the teacher.
c) If the student obtained a very negative mark (<10/30) in a previous written test, even in this case the oral test must be sustained in the same appeal on the date indicated by the teacher 
Assessment criteria:

To pass the exam the student must demonstrate the ability of analyzing mechanical systems, the ability of dividing complex systems into subsystems, the ability of understanding the physical phenomena that govern kinematics and dynamics of mechanical systems.
In detail, numerical exercises are evaluated positively if the calculation method and hypothesis are correct and the final result is correct.
The answers to the theory questions are evaluated positively, if the physical / mathematical treatment is correct, the exposure is clear and the treatment is complete. 
Course unit contents:

Kinematics
Elements of kinematics of rigid bodies, instantaneous centers of rotation. Closed kinematic chains, methods of analysis, application examples. Mechanisms with two or more closed chains, decomposition into Assur groups. Open kinematic chains, introduction to methods of analysis, examples of industrial robots. Cam mechanisms, methods of analysis. Transmission of motion with gears, planetary gears, joints. Kinematic synthesis.
Dynamics
Transmission of forces in mechanical systems, elements of tribology: friction and rolling friction. Belt transmissions.
Introduction to lubrication. Basic equations for dynamic analysis of rigid body systems, Newtonian and energy approaches, application examples. Application of the energy method to 1 degree of freedom systems consisting of rigid bodies, reduction of forces and inertias. Regularization of the motion. Performance of mechanical systems.
