Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students know and understand the fundamental concepts for modeling and numerical analysis of flexible multibody dynamics. They are able to name the essential propositions of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them. In particular, they are able to outline the conditions and assumptions that are necessary for the validity of the statements.

By completing the given exercises (integrated into the lecture), the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture. In addition, they have learnt how to apply these techniques to new problems, to analyze them, and to develop solution strategies.
