Description

Who is the course for?
This module covers an extended range of mechanical principles which underpin the design and operation of mechanical engineering systems. It includes strengths of materials and mechanics of machines. The aim of the module is to provide a firm foundation for work in engineering design and a basis for more advanced study.

What will I study?

Investigate complex loading systems
• identify the relationship between longitudinal and transverse strain
• determine the effects of two-dimensional and three-dimensional loading on the dimensions of materials
• determine volumetric strain and change in volume
• define Bulk Modulus and recognise the relationship between elastic constan…

This module covers an extended range of mechanical principles which underpin the design and operation of mechanical engineering systems. It includes strengths of materials and mechanics of machines. The aim of the module is to provide a firm foundation for work in engineering design and a basis for more advanced study.

What will I study?

Investigate complex loading systems
• identify the relationship between longitudinal and transverse strain
• determine the effects of two-dimensional and three-dimensional loading on the dimensions of materials
• determine volumetric strain and change in volume
• define Bulk Modulus and recognise the relationship between elastic constants.

Investigate the behaviour of loaded beams and cylinders
• recognise the relationship between bending moment, slope and deflection for loaded beams
• determine slope and deflection along loaded beams
• determine the principal stresses which occur in thin-walled pressure vessels
• determine the distribution of stress in thick-walled cylinders when subjected to pressure.

Investigate power transmission system elements
• determine the maximum power which can be transmitted by means of a belt drive
• determine the maximum power which can be transmitted by a friction clutch
• determine the torque and power transmitted through gear trains.

Investigate the dynamics of rotating systems
• determine balancing masses required to obtain dynamic equilibrium in rotating systems
• determine the energy storage requirements of flywheels
• determine the effects of coupling freely rotating systems.


Assessment Outcomes:
At the end of these modules the student should be able to demonstrate a practical capacity to carry out the tasks listed to a commercially acceptable standard, applying principles correctly in context but may not yet have developed a deep understanding of the theoretical underpinning of the subject. Optional assessments are included.


How will the course be delivered?

The course runs for a maximum of 1 week – 9am until 7pm.
