5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

The purpose Formation of specialized competence in the ability to make a reasonable choice of sets of machines and equipment for the implementation of construction operations based on comprehensive knowledge of modern construction machines and equipment.
A student has to demonstrate such learning outcomes on the discipline:
- know: basic concepts related to construction equipment; main parts and units of construction machines, their mechanisms, drives; construction tool; classi-fication of construction machines; design features of various construction machines; the principle of operation of construction machines; methods for calculating the main technical and economic indicators of construction machines;
- understand: the relationship between the correct establishment of types of work, the operating conditions of construction equipment, the calculation of indica-tors of construction machines and the choice of construction equipment for con-struction work;
- be able to: using the basic concepts related to construction equipment, clas-sify construction equipment and apply methods for calculating the main technical and economic indicators of construction machines to select construction equipment, taking into account the type and conditions of construction work;
- analyze:
- the results of calculations of the main technical and economic indicators of construction machines and the choice of construction equipment;
- functional features of modern construction machines and mechanisms;
- options for a technological set of machines, means of mechanization and transport for choosing the most optimal option for planning construction work;
- synthesize: the results of the analysis of calculations and the choice of con-struction equipment;
- to evaluate: the correctness of calculations of the main technical and eco-nomic indicators of construction machines and the choice of construction equip-ment.
