CES Mechanics I
A custom sequence of Mechanics courses has become a part of CES curriculum starting in 2005. The CES Mechanics I and II are taught by CATS, and CES Mechanics III, i.e., Deformable Body Mechanics, is taught by Lehr- und Forschungsgebiet Kontinuumsmechanik (Prof. Itskov).
The written repeat exam (only for students who took this course in Winter 2008/9 or earlier) took place on March 8, 2010, 09:00–12:00 in room 1010|141 (Hörsaal IV).
- The exam problems, solutions and results will be posted latest by March 22, 2010.
- The exam inspection (Klausureinsicht) will take place on March 25, 2010, 15:00-16:30h in CATS institute, Schinkelstr.2, seminar room 115 on first floor
- Oral exams will take place on April 07, 2010 in the morning. Registration for oral exam is possible on the exam inspection day or please contact email@example.com.
The slide examples linked from individual lecture pages are only available from the RWTH network, e.g., MOPS wireless with VPN. If you still have a problem accessing the files (most likely because reverse DNS is not identifying your computer properly), please contact Christoph Stolz.
The RWTH library has licensed online (PDF) versions of many Springer textbooks, including Technische Mechanik 1–3, as well as Aufgaben zu Technische Mechanik 1–3.
