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:
 EA 772 Introductory Dynamics
 EB 771 Advanced Dynamics
 EA 001 Calculus
 VBH624 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1
 VBH625 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2

Course Description

The purpose of this module is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to describe and analyse the effects of forces on the motion of particles, in order to predict dynamical behaviour in preparation for engineering design. This module also facilitates articulation to Degree courses in Engineering (Mechanical/Manufacturing)


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

VBG873 Mechanics of Machines 1


Learning Outcomes


On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Solve engineering problems relating to the Kinematics of particles moving with Rectilinear Motion.
2. Solve engineering problems relating to the Kinematics of particles moving with Curvilinear Two and Three Dimensional Motion.
3. Use Newton’s Second Law of Motion to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of particles subjected to unbalanced Forces, for Rectilinear and Curvilinear (Two and Three Dimensional) motion applications.
4. Use Work - Energy methods to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of particles moving with Rectilinear and Curvilinear (Planar) motion.
5. Use Impulse and Momentum principles to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of particles moving with Rectilinear and Curvilinear (Planar) motion.


Details of Learning Activities

Students will participate in lectures, problem solving activities, written assignment, analysing engineering data’s and final test. In the computer lab, there will be set of project work will demonstrated using WORKING MODEL software.
