Mechanical Vibrations and Noise
The student should be able to create mathematical and physical models ir order to understand the behaviour of simple mechanical systems or structures. The student should be also able to design or modify those mechanical systems in order to attain some dynamic properties. Concerning noise the student should understand the basic concepts of noise measurement and isolation.

The distributed evaluation comprises the realization of 3 components (theoretical and practical) termed T1, T2 and T3. The final average mark is calculated as follows:
Final average mark = 0,15 T1 + 0,45 T2 + 0,40 T3
The success in the course depends on the determination of the average of 9.5 in the distributed evaluation conducted throughout the semester, or obtaining the mark 9.5 in the exam.
A mark higher than 16 will require an oral examination.
