Objectives 
Fundamental laws and methods in dynamics of rigid and deformable bodies and in strength of materials

Subject 
The lecture Engineering Mechanics 2 is concerned with dynamics and strength of materials of material bodies and their application to engineering systems. The topics
 Balance of linear momentum and moment of momentum (rigid and deformable bodies, moment of inertia, Euler's equations, local balance equations)
 Energybased methods (work, energy and power theorems, potential energy of forces and force field)
 d'Alembert's principle (rigid and deformable bodies, principle of virtual work, Gibbs principle)
 Linearized elasticity (fundamentals, linear elastic body, Hooke's law, Navier equations)
 Yield criteria (von Mises, Tresca)
 Bending of straight beams (differential equation, principle of virtual forces, force method, transfer matrix method)
 Eigenvalue problems (buckling of straight rods, natural vibrations of beams)
 Selected solutions of linearized elasticity (St. Venant torsion, discs)
are treated in detail.
