Introduction mechanical engineering and truss structures



This course provides an overview of mechanical engineering as constructive science with lectures on materials (strength), dynamics (motion) and hydrodynamics (process). Furthermore, it provides an introduction to mechanical-engineering design in the project 'Truss-construction', in which a force-optimized truss is computer simulated and its strength is tested in the 'design contest' following the 7-phases principle of design.
