**Aim**

The objectives of this introductory course in engineering mechanics are to

- aquire knowledge of and master the general principles and basic concepts of classical mechanics,
- become familiar with mathematical modelling of mechanical systems (particles and rigid body systems),
- learn to master problem solving for material bodies,
- learn how to use a modern engineering computer program in multibody dynamics.

**Contents****Statics:** Forces, moments, couples and general force systems. Equivalent force systems. Equilibrium and free-body diagrams. Applications on equilibrium of material bodies. Distributed forces. (Centers of mass and centroids, beams). Friction.

**Dynamics:** Kinematics and kinetics of particles (general) and rigid bodies (plane). Energy, work, linear and angular impulse and momentun. Impact. Vbrations.
