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).

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.

Marking Guide for Assessment of OENG5195 Mechanics of Machines -2.

Distribution Of marks for Each Questions are as follows

S.noMarking Criteria Percentage of Allocated

Mark per Question

1writing down the data given clearly
2selecting the correct formula or equation and writing down
3Clearly demonstrating the Prroblem solving techniques used and presented 60%
4Using Appropriate units 10%
5Correct Answers 10%

Problem solving techniques means:

1. Read the problem carefully and try to correlate the actual physical situation with the theory you studied.
2. Draw any necessary diagrams and tabulate the problem data.
3. Establish a coordinate system and apply any relevant mathematical principles.
4. Solve the necessary equations algebraically, then use consistent set of units and complete the solution numerically. Report the answers with its units
5. Study the answers using technical judgement and common sense determine whether or not it seems reasonable.

Other Information

Students please note that Both the Exam and test will be Closed Book exam. Formula and Answering sheet will be provided in the exam hall. Unit Tests and Main Exam dates are Tentative. It may Change during session delivery time. Changes of Dates will be informed.
