    ECTS 3.0


Know the basic principles of technical drawing and the representation of parts and systems in a 2D plan.

Understand assembly drawings and recognize the basic components of general mechanics (bearings, screws, axles, cogwheels, keys, etc.)

To know the principles and symbols of kinematics and know how to mobilize them for the production of kinematic representations.

Know how to make simplifying hypotheses and propose simple system models to then solve them.
Application in simple cases of general mechanics in the case of indeformable solids.

Master the elements of kinematic representation (input-output law).

The cases of resolution in statics (Fundamental Principle of Statics) will be approached in the following period.


Guillaume THOMANN


The course is based on elements of kinematics behaviour of rigid bodies.

Presentation of concepts of motion, deformation and stress in continuum mechanics (area studied: deformable solids).

Presentation of how to determine and use these concepts in product design and process.

Hypotheses on strength of materials and classical solutions to strengths of materials.

Practical work:

  • Application of the analysis methods of mechanical systmes (static behaviour and kinematics)
  • Expérimentation and simulation, analysis and results comparison
  • cad tool manipulation for simulation
  • strengths of materials in the case of linear elasticity. Instrumentation and measurement.


General Mechanics and mathematics


Continuous assessment (CC) = the TP grade

Assessment session 1 (E1) = written exam (0.7) + TP mark (0.3)
Assessment session 2 (E2) = written or oral exam

NB = base score
N1 = final grade for session 1
N2 = final grade for session 2

The jury can decide to move on to a higher year, subject to deferred validation of this EU. This decision remains exceptional; the jury is sovereign for each student.

In the context of this present course, the attendance of a student can have an impact on the calculation of the continuous assessment mark: for example a penalty per absence, which can go up to zero in the CC in the event of repeated absences...).

N1 = 0,7 Ex + 0,3 CC

N2 = Ex2
