The subject aims to provide the understanding of rigid body dynamics, extending from the pre-requisite subject: MCEN30016 Mechanical Dynamics. The study will concentrate on the continuous motion as well as collision of rigid bodies (impact). Kinematics of rigid bodies will be discussed with focus on the deeper understanding of constraints, degrees of freedom, generalised coordinates, absolute velocities in different reference frames. Kinetics will extend the understanding of Newton-Euler approach in multi-body mechanisms and the concepts of Virtual Work and Virtual Displacement, kinetic energy function, potential energy function, leading to the introduction of the Lagrange Equation for the derivation of the equation of motion. Collision of rigid bodies is modelled using the Impulse Momentum Principal.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs)
Having completed this unit the student is expected to be able to:
• Four written assignments (10% each), each requiring 10 - 13 hours of work.
All assessments are associated with Intended Learning Outcomes 1-3.

On completion of the subject students should have the following skills:
LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject will be delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials. Students will also complete four assignments which will reinforce the material covered in lectures.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students will have access to lecture notes and lecture slides. The subject LMS site also contains worked solutions for all the tutorials, while assignment problems will be discussed in the lecture after submission.
