This subject provides 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 upon different load applications.
|Objectives:||Upon completion of this subject students should be able to: |
- formulate problems in statics and dynamics by choosing suitable system boundaries and identifying relevant forces and coordinate system
- analyse the equilibrium of systems of forces in two and three dimensions
- determine the loads and stresses experienced by components of common engineering structures such as trusses, frames and beams
- describe and analyse the motion of particles and rigid bodies using three-dimensional vectors
- apply the principles of impulse-momentum and work-energy to solve problems in the dynamics of simple machines and vibrating structures
|Assessment:||Two midsemester tests in weeks 5 and 10 (2 x 5%) |
Assignments and laboratories (4 x 7.5%)
One three hour end of semester exam (60%)
|Breadth Options:|| |
This subject is not available as a breadth subject.
|Fees Information:||Subject EFTSL, Level, Discipline & Census Date|
|Generic Skills:||On completion of the subject students should have the following: |
- ability to apply knowledge of basic science and engineering fundamentals
- ability to communicate effectively, not only with engineers but also with the community at large
- in-depth technical competence in at least one engineering discipline
- ability to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution;
- ability to function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be leader or manager as well as an effective team member
Students who commenced a Bachelor of Engineering prior to 2008 and have not yet completed 436-202 Mechanics 1, should enrol in ENGR20004 instead.This subject is available for science credit to students enrolled in the BSc (new degree only).
