Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Required prior study:

Mechanical Design 1 or equivalent; AND

Solid Mechanics 3 or equivalent


Course Description

This course is part of a sequence of design courses and aims to give practice in this design project situation, in the use of knowledge gained from a wide range of other courses previously or concurrently studied. It has two parts addressing two design approaches: design by code and design by performance. The design by code part combines theoretical approaches to aspects of stress analysis with practical application of this knowledge in a design project situation of designing the air storage pressure vessel. The second part is more oriented towards product development and innovation experienced in technology start-up firms. This part will offer students an opportunity to apply appropriate tools and structured methods to their own products and develop prototypes. Some of the tools and methods will include customer research, concept creation, product design, prototype development, and market validation. Learning is problem-based for the project duration.

Please note that if you take this course for a bachelor honours program, your overall mark in this course will be one of the course marks that will be used to calculate the weighted average mark (WAM) that will determine your award level. This applies to students who commence enrolment in a bachelor honours program from 1 January 2016 onwards. See the WAM information web page for more information.(http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=eyj5c0mo77631)


 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes:

  • In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
  • Knowledge of contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline.
  • Understanding of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in the specific discipline.
  • Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.
  • Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.
  • Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.
  • Ethical conduct and professional accountability
  • Creative, innovative and pro-active demeanour.
  • Professional use and management of information
  • Effective team membership and team leadership • Effective oral and written communication in professional and lay domains

 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

On completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Analyse loadings and stresses, and apply this and knowledge from other discipline areas to mechanical engineering design.
  2. Manage a large project that requires seeking out relevant information from the literature in particular various standards and regulations that must be complied with.
  3. Design systems and components to acceptable industrial quality
  4. Critically evaluate the process frameworks for developing new products
  5. Apply new product development fundamentals to the analysis and design a new product idea
  6. Work collaboratively in teams to manage product development projects and report on milestone achievements


Overview of Learning Activities

The learning in this course is largely design problem based, with exercises and two large multi-stage projects related to the design of mechanical components and systems. Lectures, and associated reading, will be used to refresh and extend theoretical knowledge of advanced topics relevant to the projects. Tutorials will be used for you to work under supervision on exercises and the projects. 


Overview of Learning Resources

There is a prescribed volume of project resource material, a prescribed Standard and several recommended references.
