Text of Declaratory


The sector includes the cultural and professional aspects inherent in the study of mechanical systems using the methodologies of theoretical mechanics. The typology of the studied machines is completely general; however, extensive reference is made to driving and operating machines, mechanical devices, automatic machines and robots, vehicles and biomechanical systems. In particular, both the analysis and the synthesis of the mechanical behavior of the machines and systems indicated above are studied. The analysis is divided into modeling, simulation, regulation and control of the same; the synthesis is aimed at their functional design. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of vibratory and tribological phenomena of machines. Strong interrelationships are implemented with the methodologies and algorithms developed in the fields of design and methods of industrial engineering, mechanical design and construction of machines and fluid dynamics.
