Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
The following modules (or equivalents) should be preferably completed prior to, or in conjunction with, this module:
 EB 771 Advanced Dynamics
 EA 001 Calculus
To enable students to identify, analyse and design industrial mechanisms involving principles of kinematics and kinetics of mechanisms and vibration.
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
EB702 Dynamics of Industrial Machines
On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Calculate natural frequency for free damped vibration for simple mechanical rotating systems from basic principles.
2. Carry out vibration tests for various machine types, and static balance tests for rotating machines.
3. Calculate (using vector diagrams) absolute and relative velocity/acceleration using vector analysis of simple mechanical linkages and slider crank mechanisms.
4. Determine speed and direction of various components in geared mechanisms.
Details of Learning Activities
The learning activities in this course are designed to equip students with knowledge and skills in applying the principles of dynamics to specific items of machinery enabling the calculation of essenial parameters used for design.
The course will be using a combination of lectures, reading tasks, practical work and mainly tutorials/assignments to achieve these objectives.
Readings: Students may be required to read relevant section(s) of the recommended references/class notes prior to the next class.
Tutorial work & Practical Assignments challenge the students and ensure that participants apply and deepen the theoretical knowledge covered in lectures.
