Applied mechanics examines the response of bodies (solids and fluids) or systems of bodies to
external forces. Statics is the branch of mechanics concerned with the analysis of loads (force,
torque/moment) on physical systems in static equilibrium. The students should be able to (i)
understand the fundamentals of static equilibrium and (ii) compute the internal forces of a
structure subjected to a combination of external loads.

At the end of this module the student should:
• Be familiar with statics, the equilibrium of arbitrary force systems in two and three
dimensions, structural support types, and the concept of structural mechanisms.
• Understand structural forms and their various characteristics.
• Model and solve straightforward problems in structures, including simple trusses,
beams and frames.
• Determine the internal forces in statically determinate structures.

The main aim of this course unit is to acquire competence in the understanding of Nature, in
the domain of Physics. Experimental work is expected to complement the theoretical
knowledge in the fields of science and engineering.
1. Understanding and ability to manipulate the physical entities and units covered.
2. Ability to perform scientific decisions and judgments associated both with the theoretical
and practical (experimental work and problem-solving) knowledge acquired.
3. Practising the interchanging of ideas and the discussion of problems and solutions and
developing a professional attitude in his relation to work (from experimental group work).
4. Developing self-knowledge acquisition habits (from individual study and tutorial contacts).

Students have to make two practical works involving the design and dimensioning of a
hot water network with a return circuit, and a fire sprinkler system.
A final exam (EF) is performed, which consists of a theoretical part (7 points) and a
practical part (13 points); The approval requires the mark EF to be greater than or
equal to 10 points;
The practical work (TP) is worth a total of four points; The final mark will be NF =
0.8EF+ TP.

objectives:
The main aim of the course is to introduce students to the
field of Economic Engineering, which support the analysis and evaluation of
construction projects, a situation that will certainly be faced during their professional
practice.
The concepts and methodologies used to assess the developments in the construction
business, will be introduced, particularly those related to financial mathematics,
methods of economic evaluation and risk analysis. The concepts of strategic analysis as
well as the influence of the marketing aspects in such projects, will also be present.
In order to provide the students with proper assessment tools in a multidimensional
perspective of those projects, multiattribute analysis methodologies are also tought.
