|Semester||Spring Semester 2016|
|Lecturers||J. G. Snedeker|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Abstract||Introduction to engineering mechanics with applications in biology and medicine: kinematics and statics of rigid bodies and systems. Basic introduction to deformation and failure of materials under load.|
|Objective||Students can solve problems of elementary engineering mechanics, and understand how these are relevant to biology and medicine.|
|Content||Basic notions: position and velocitiy of particles, rigid bodies, planar motion, kinematics of rigid body, force, couple, power.|
Statics: static equivalence, force-couple system, center of forces, centroid, principle of virtual power, equilibrium, constraints, statics, friction.
Effects of mechanical load, and material stresses and deformation in tension, compression, bending, and torsion.
