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:
 VBG873 Mechanics of Machines 1
 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 rigid bodies and vibrating systems, in order to predict dynamical behaviour in preparation for engineering design. The module is a follow on from Mechanics of Machines 1, and also facilitates articulation to Degree courses in Engineering (Mechanical/Manufacturing).

National Element Code & Title:

VBG874 Mechanics of Machines 2

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Solve engineering problems relating to the Kinematics of rigid bodies moving with planar motion.
2. Use Newton’s Second Law of Motion to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of rigid bodies subjected to unbalanced Forces and Moments, resulting in planar motion.
3. Use Work - Energy methods to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of rigid bodies moving with planar motion.
4. Use Impulse and Momentum principles to solve engineering problems relating to the Kinetics of rigid bodies moving with planar motion.
5. Solve engineering problems relating to the dynamic behaviour of vibrating single-degree of freedom systems.

Details of Learning Activities

Class room lecturing, problem solving with different data"s and parameters and Applying mathmatical steps. Students will be educated to thing and analyse the data available and find the solution.
