The evaluation of the subject will be carried out through the execution of several exercises, individually, that will be proposed throughout the course. They shall consist of case studies of design and / or analysis of machines or mechanical systems in which the analysis and simulation tools introduced in the subject are made use, and must be submitted within the deadlines established in each call. Teachers will be able to request the exhibition of the work.
Students who do not opt for continuous evaluation, or who do not submit the proposed papers in a call, may expressly request that the subject be evaluated through a final exam. It will be a practical exam in the computer classroom, in which they must use the analysis and simulation tools. The final exam may be opted instead of the ongoing evaluation in each of the teaching units independently. If a student requests the evaluation by final examination of one of the teaching units, the student renounces the note obtained in the continuous evaluation in that teaching unit if he has submitted any of the exercises requested during the course.
Each of the teaching units will be evaluated separately: Simulation of mechanisms and the finite element method. The final grade of the subject will be obtained as the arithmetic mean of the marks of each of the teaching units. In order to make the mean, the grade of each of the teaching units must be greater than 4.
