|Brief Handbook Description:||This unit of study aims to teach: Dynamics of Rigid Bodies: Analysis of Planar mechanisms; Kinematics of rigid bodies; Kinetics of rigid bodies. Students will also develop their skills in: how to model and analyse dynamic systems and the application of theory to real systems through practical/laboratory sessions. At the end of this unit students will have developed skills in modelling and analysing planar mechanisms and rigid body dynamic systems. Course content will include planar mechanisms, linkages, mobility; instant centres of rotation, Kennedy's theorem; velocity and acceleration polygons; kinematics of rigid bodies, frames of reference, velocity and acceleration, rotating frame of reference, relative velocity and acceleration, gyroscopic acceleration; kinetics of rigid bodies, linear momentum and Euler's first law; angular momentum and Euler's second law; centre of mass; moments of inertia, parallel axis and parallel plane theorems, principal axes and principal moments of inertia, rotation about an axis; impulse and momentum; work and energy, kinetic and potential energies; applications to orbital and gyroscopic motion; introduction to Lagrangian methods.|
|Assumed Knowledge:||Physics, statics, Particle dynamics, Differential Calculus, Linear Algebra, Integral Calculus and Modelling.|
Dr Altaee, Abdul Malik
|T&L Activities:||Lecture: During the lectures basic material will be presented with an emphasis on explaining the more difficult concepts, and presenting worked solutions of sample problems. Students are expected to buy textbook/lecture notes and read the relevant sections prior to the lectures. Attendance to the lectures is COMPULSORY. Random class activities or roll-marking will be performed to check individual attendance, which will be counted when rounding up your final grade.
Tutorial: Attendance at tutorials is COMPULSORY and will be counted in the Assignment marks in part or whole There will be a hand-in assignment associated with each tutorial. Failure to attend one week tutorial (2 hours) will lead to 20% loss of the marks in this corresponding assignment. Failure to attend 6 week tutorials will lead to zero mark in your whole assignment component) Please stay with your timetabled tutorial session in order to record your attendance.
Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|Ability to realistical model an engineering situation and apply a few fundamental, well understood principles to its solution.||Design (Level 1)|
|Essential knowledge in the fields of kinematics and dynamics.||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 1)|
|Ability to thoroughly present and communicate knowledge gained.||Communication (Level 1)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Design (Level 1)
Assignment: Assignments. There will be a hand-in assignment associated with each tutorial, with hand-in dates and location written on the tutorial question sheet.
Quiz: Two quizzes, 5% each in weeks 7 and 12.
Lab Report: Two individual laboratory reports, 5% each. Reports must be submitted to the lab demonstrators one week after each of two laboratory sessions.
Final Exam: Final exam - closed book (essential formulas will be provided).

These goals are selected from Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table which defines overall goals for courses where this unit is primarily offered. See Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table for details of the attributes and levels to be developed in the course as a whole. Percentage figures alongside each course goal provide a rough indication of their relative weighting in assessment for this unit. Note that not all goals are necessarily part of assessment. Some may be more about practice activity. See Learning outcomes for details of what is assessed in relation to each goal and Assessment for details of how the outcome is assessed. See Attributes for details of practice provided for each goal.
