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.
  • Definition of biomechanics, importace, history. Physical base of biomechanics - Kinematics: mass point, distance, velocity, acceleration, straight motion, accelerated motion, cirgular motion. Dynamics: force, Newton's Laws, deformations, Hook's Law, momentum and its conservation, impulse. Mechanics of rigid body: moment of force, principle of moments, centre of gravity, equilibrium positions, statics. Mechanical energy, work, power, conservation of energy. Mechanics of liquid and gas. Biological base of biomechanics. Measurement and experiment in biomechanics.
