Practicals: MSc. Petr Koudelka

Syllabus

Exam update (valid from 18. May 2020)

Dear students, due to the end of acute epidemic situation, the CTU rules allows to realize standard exam procedure. The credit assignment is mandatory condition to finish the course. Base on the level of the points obtained from the homeworks, the students could be evaluated without final exam reaching the limits:
  • E > 5.0 points
  • D > 5.5 points
  • C > 6.0 points
  • B > 6.5 points
  • A = 7.0 points
For the others with points in range 3.5-5.0, early bird term May 25 and regular term in September is planned. The regular term will be available in KOS from early August. No regular terms will be available after September. Personal attendance on the exam is required. No exam in distance form will be realised.

Syllabus update (valid from 20. Mar 2020)

Dear students, due to actual epidemic situation and following CTU rules regarding to distance form of the teaching some changes in the 18SAT course were applied.

  • The plan of lectures and practicals was updated
  • The lectures are held partly online using MS Teams application and in form of mail delivered presentations (or links). The recommended study teaching aids will be announced no later than on the date of the lectures.
  • The practicals are held online using MS Teams application or in form of solved examples available on this server or send by e-mail.
  • Opening short tests will be substituted by homeworks. For evaluation, the tasks must be submitted by e-mail to koudelka@fd.cvut.cz no later than on Sunday 12:00 the same week the task had been assigned. The homeworks will be evaluated in the range of 0.0-1.0 points (the same range as original short tests). The list of homework assignments is available here.

Subject annotation

18SAT is focused on the fundamentals of theoretical background and practical abilities in structural analysis of engineering constructions. During the course, the students will study the main topics listed in schedule of lectures and practicals. Mathematical apparatus taught in courses 11CAL1 and 11LA will be frequently used to solve tasks of this subject.

Goals

The students will gain the abilities for practical structural analysis of simple engineering structures, e.g. various types of beams, truss systems, and chains, including thorough understanding of the related theoretical background.

Prerequisites

  1. Mathematical analysis of functions of one variable: function maxima and minima, derivation and integration of polynomial functions
  2. Linear algebra: solution of systems of linear equations
  3. High-school physics

Literature

  1. F. Beer et al.: Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics, McGraw-Hill, 2015
  2. H.C. Russell: Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Prentice Hal, 2015
  3. J.H. Allen: Statics For Dummies, For Dummies, 2010

Conditions for course credit assignment

  1. Active attendance on the practicals. Each lesson will be opened by a short test. Up to one point can be obtained by successfully solving the exercise of each test. Active attendance is completed by obtaining more than 50% of total sum of the points from the tests assigned on all practicals.
  2. Homework.One beam structure will be analysed as an individually assigned homework. The task will be sent to the students by e-mail. The proper solution meeting the typographical criteria presented in http://mech.fd.cvut.cz/education/bachelor/18sat-en/homework must be submitted by e-mail to koudelka@fd.cvut.cz no later than 6 May 2020.

The Exam

  1. Valid course credit assignment is required for registration to exam.
  2. The exam is composed of written and oral part.
  3. Satisfying the conditions for pass in the written part is mandatory prior to the oral part.
  4. In case of lack of fundamental knowledge presented at the oral part, the exam is ranked as F (Fail) regardless of the results of the written test.
  5. In case of absence on the exam, the exam is ranked as F (Fail).
