For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry. The University is dedicated to provide support to those with special requirements. Further details on the disability support scheme can be found at the Disability Liaison Unit
CoordinatorDr David Ackland
The aim of this subject is to provide an introduction to modelling the stresses and deformations that occur when axial, torsional and flexural loads are applied to a body in static equilibrium, as well as the translational and rotational motions that eventuate in a body subject to different load applications. This material will be complemented with laboratory and project based approaches to learning.
The subject provides the basis for all the mechanical engineering subjects that follow. The calculations introduced in this subject are the most common type of calculations performed by professional mechanical engineers working in all sectors of the industry.
Intended Learning Outcomes
Having completed this unit the student should be able to -
1 - Formulate problems in statics and dynamics by choosing suitable system boundaries and identifying relevant forces and coordinate systems
The examination paper will consist of problems designed to test whether the student has acquired the ability to apply fundamental principles to the solutions of problems involving statics and dynamics. The problems set for the exam will be similar to those undertaken in the workshops.
Hurdle requirement: Students must pass the exam component to pass the subject.
