Course Description The aim of this course is to provide basic analytical tools for the quantitative analysis of the statics of structures through a process leading form physical intuition to the rigorous formalisation of concepts like "movement" and "equilibrium". With particular emphasis on systems of rigid bodies, this process encompasses the following steps: analysis of configurations (large and infinitesimal displacements), kinematics, force systems, equations of equilibrium in statics, virtual work principle. Finally,a brief introduction to the statics of flexible cables is provided. 1. Introduction: Kinematics Degrees of freedom and free coordinates. Infinitesimal displacements. Virtual displacements. Velocity field field for a rigid motion. Velocity field for a constrained system. Virtual velocities. Acceleration in a rigid motion. Relative kinematics. 2. Dynamics Reference frames. Fundamental laws of dynamics. Work and energy. Mechanical quantities. Conservation laws. Cardinal equations of dynamics. Theorem of kinetic energy. Relative mechanics. Dynamics of free and constrained points; Vibrations; dynamical friction. Dynamics of free and constrained rigid bodies; rigid body with a fixed axis and rigid body with a fixed point. Postulates for the dynamics of systems. Dynamics of holonomic systems; Lagrange's equations. Equilibrium stability and vibrations.
