For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability
|Subject Overview:|| |
Unit 1, Stress Analysis: Upon completion of this unit, students should be able to model a variety of mechanical engineering structures as a number of elementary components and stress analyse each component to determine failure loads and deflections of the complete structure.
Topics covered include engineering plasticity, design of pressure vessels and pipes, thick-walled cylinders, shrink fitting, duplex pressure vessels, inelastic deformation, residual stresses, membrane theory of shells of revolution, yielding, rotating shells, local bending stresses, stress analysis of rotating discs with and without holes, shrink fitting, initial and ultimate yielding, fracture mechanics and fatigue, and introduction to the finite element method.
Unit 2, Dynamics of Mechanical Systems: Upon completion, students should be able to formulate physical and mathematical models for three-dimensional dynamic analysis of mechanical systems, solve the mathematical models by means of analytical and numerical methods and assess stability of their Âsolutions.
Topics covered include constraints, mobility, generalised coordinates, number of degrees of freedom, driving forces, virtual displacement, generalised force, impressed forces and constraint forces, principle of virtual work, Lagrange equations of motion, kinetic energy function, potential energy function, collisions of unconstrained and constrained bodies, and analysis of mathematical models.
|Assessment:||One 3-hour examination at the end of semester (80%).Unit 1: assignment of up to 1000 words (10%).Unit 2: assignment of up to 1000 words (5%) and 2 laboratory reports (5%) due throughout the semester.|
