Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
Learning outcomes
The aim of the subject is to deepen theoretical knowledge of constructional features and groups of vehicles. To teach principles of designing and calculating the main constructional groups and parts of vehicles.
After passing the subject, the student is acquainted with the current trends in construction of vehicles. He/she knows the systems and principles used of constructional solution of the current vehicles. He/she has theoretical knowledge of the way of designing and calculating the basic constructional components of vehicles.
Prerequisites
The knowledge of the constructional arrangement of the road vehicles. The knowledge of the method of operation of particular groups and parts of the gear system and chassis of the vehicles. Ability to apply the knowledge of the theory of vehicles in practical applications. Ability to apply the mathematic apparatus for deducing the necessary dependencies for determining the weighting forces in the solidity calculations.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

In the course of the semester and at the final exam, the student has to demonstrate mastering the theoretical principles for designing and solidity check of the vehicle's parts. To be able to define the ways of weighting the constituent parts of the vehicle. To master the basic principles of the procedure of solidity calculations of the parts of the gear mechanism and the vehicle chassis. Concrete requirements shall be given to the students by the tutor in the first week of the semester.
