"Prohibited topics include: dynamic calculations"

Idk why everyone's trying so hard on that problem when it's never going to come up at nationals or anything .__.

I was never quite sure what dynamic calculations were; is it just anything not in static equilibrium?

I would think so; the opposite of dynamic calculations should be static calculations, which would be anything in equilibrium. However I find it hard to believe that some basic dynamic calculations won't be included, for example the acceleration of masses on a fixed pulley would be something I would expect to come across at Nationals.
