Oral exam with discussion of the topics.
The oral exam comprises two questions abut the topics of the course. During the exam, the theoretical aspects and the application to a numerical example will be discussed, in order to assess the capability of the student of performing calculations about mechanical components. Behind the correctness of the solution, also the quality of the presentation, the usage of the correct terminology and the capacity of critical analysis will be assessed.
