Fundamental courses


Course of mechanics in Romanian:    N. Manafi - Bazele mecanicii aplicate

Course of mechanics in English:    R. Voinea, I. Stroe, M. V. Predoi - Technical Mechanics


The fundamental courses taught in the Department of Mechanics of the University "Politehnica" of Bucharest are addressed to the first university study cycle (license studies of 4 years).



The courses make students familiar with the fundamental notions, principles and methods of the statics, kinematics, dynamics, analytical mechanics and mechanical vibrations, such as:

  • mechanical interactions and constraints between bodies;

  • equilibrium of bodies and of systems of bodies;

  • geometrical aspect of the motion of a material point and of a rigid body;

  • dependence of the nature of the motion on the reference frame;

  • the way interactions between bodies determine their motion;

  • conditions, physical significance and practical consequences of conservation of certain mechanical quantities;

  • effects of shocks;

  • causes, effects and characteristics of periodical motions.

Students will understand the general stages of solving a technical problem which involves mechanical phenomena:

  • modeling of bodies and of systems of bodies;

  • study by analytical, numerical and experimental methods;

  • interpretation of the results.

The courses intend, also, to form a common, standard and accurate technical language, indispensable for the communication in multidisciplinary engineering teams.


Applications that accompany the courses are designed in such a manner, that students:

  • gain the ability to model real mechanical systems by means of the simplified concepts of material point and rigid body;

  • develop the capability to apply in practical problems the studied theoretical principles and analytical methods;

  • understand and compare the applicability conditions, the advantages and the limits of various study methods;

  • stimulate the creativity of the students and the interactive participation to the solving of the proposed problems.


Specific competencies

Graduates of the courses will achieve the following specific competences:

  • identification and understanding of the functioning of mechanical devices and components in industrial systems of various kinds (heat, hydraulic and electrical machines and installations; road, railway and air vehicles; biotechnical, chemical and metallurgical installations and devices; manufacturing tools, industrial robots and automatic systems; small size devices and electromechanical components);

  • modeling, formulating and solving of mechanics problems involved in industry.


Specialized courses
