Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (45-75 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester
  • Examination number: 10004 ("Applied Mechanics IV")

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • fundamentals of oscillations
  • free and driven oscillations with and without damping (amplitude and phase response)
  • Lagrange equations of the second kind (one and two degrees of freedom, resonance, tuned mass damper)
  • continuum oscillations (string, normal strain and torsion bars, beams, wave propagation, solutions of d’Alembert and Bernoulli)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

1. Lecture

Students are able to

  • state fundamental concepts of oscillations
  • show the influence of damping on differently driven oscillations
  • formulate Lagrange equations of the second kind
  • describe wave propagation and oscillation phenomena in one-dimensional continuous systems

2. Tutorial

Students are able to

  • characterize and analyze oscillation systems with one degree of freedom
  • compute the oscillation behavior of damped and undamped systems for differently driven oscillations
  • apply the Lagrange equations of the second kind to formulate the equations of motion
  • compute wave propagation and oscillation behavior of one-dimensional structural elements
  • present and discuss their results among themselves
