Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Required Prior Study

You should have satisfactorily completed the below courses before you commence this course: 

  • Mechanical Design 1 or equivalent; AND
  • Solid Mechanics 3 or equivalent

Alternatively, you may be able to demonstrate the required skills and knowledge before you start this course. 
Contact your course coordinator if you think you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. 


Course Description

This course is part of a sequence of design courses. It combines theoretical approaches to aspects of stress analysis with practical application of this knowledge in a design project situation. The course also 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. The work on the particular system that will be studied (a compressed air supply system for a factory) involves designing an air storage pressure vessel. Learning is problem-based for the project duration with an aim to develop students as self-directed learners and prepare them for real-world challenges. 

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.

  • Effective team membership and team leadership.

For more information on the program learning outcomes for your program, please see the program guide. 


Course Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, you will 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. Work collaboratively in teams to manage product development projects and report on milestone achievements.


Overview of Learning Activities

You will be actively engaged in a range of learning activities such as lectorials, tutorials, practicals, laboratories, seminars, project work, class discussion, individual and group activities. Delivery may be face to face, online or a mix of both.


You are encouraged to be proactive and self-directed in your learning, asking questions of your lecturer and/or peers and seeking out information as required, especially from the numerous sources available through the RMIT library, and through links and material specific to this course that is available through myRMIT Studies Course.


Overview of Learning Resources

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through myRMIT Studies Course.

There are services available to support your learning through the University Library. The Library provides guides on academic referencing and subject specialist help as well as a range of study support services. For further information, please visit the Library page on the RMIT University website and the myRMIT student portal.
