Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able: to explain the fundamental mechanics laws and principles, to synthesize these knowledges with biologicals systems knowledges earlier acquired, to apply the bases of this synergetic discipline to human motion system and to sports movement.
Syllabus
• Definition of biomechanics, importace, history. Physical base of biomechanics: line coordinates, scalares, vectores, units. Kinematics: mass point, distance, velocity, acceleration, straight motion, accelerated motion, cirgular motion, motions in field of gravity of Earth, describing motion with graphs. Dynamics: force, Newton's Laws, effects of force, deformations, Hook's Law, momentum and its conservation, impulse, centripetal force, inertial force, D'Alambert's Principle. Mechanics of rigid body: moment of force, principle of moments, centre of gravity, equilibrium positions, statics, frictional force, air resistance force, inclined plane, lever systems. Mechanical energy, work, power, conservation of energy. Mechanics of liquid and gas: pressure, Pascal's law, Hydrostatic pressure, law of Archimedes, equation of kontinuity, Bernoulli's equation, liquid flow around an obstacle. Biological base of biomechanics: body segments, biomechanisme, weight and centre of gravity of segments, centre of gravity of humen body, angular momentum of segments, mechanics properties of skeletal system, mechanics of joint connections, mechanics of muscle, mechanics load and deformation of tissues. Measurement and experiment in biomechanics. Biomechanics applications.
