Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

None


Course Description

In this course you will study the state of rest or motion of bodies under the action of a single or multiple forces. Therefore, this course deals with Newton’s Second Law of motion which is the foundation for the design and analysis of various structural, mechanical and electrical devices found in a wide range of engineering applications. You will study the kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies using force and acceleration, work and energy, and impulse and momentum principles.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the development of the following program learning outcomes of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours):

  • Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
  • In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
  • Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.
  • Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) 

Upon successful completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Predict the effects of force, motion and their interaction in the design and operational cycles of machines and mechanical components
  2. Solve, analyse and synthesise a wide variety of practical engineering dynamics problems in a logical and effective manner. 


Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities for this course include face-to-face lectures, tutorials and laboratory experiments. The basic theoretical background will be explained in the lectures and various real-world engineering problems will be discussed and analysed in the lectures and tutorials. The basic principles will also be demonstrated and reinforced through the laboratory experiments.


Overview of Learning Resources

One prescribed textbook, lecture notes, laboratory handbook and other recommended references.
