Modelling and Simulation of Marine Systems JEE506


Students must have access to MATLAB/Simulink software. The student version is acceptable.


The purpose of this unit is to provide students with an understanding of modelling and simulation techniques and their application to the analysis of marine engineering systems. Students are introduced to numerical methods, control systems, first and second order systems, and the associated modelling strategies. This unit is structured around the application software MATLAB/Simulink which students will use to create programs that simulate marine systems such as pump-pipe networks, heating ventilating and air conditioning, and propulsion systems.

Units are offered as On-campus where the majority of teaching will occur at the campus identified.  Units offered Off-campus generally have no requirement for attendance at a physical university campus unless the unit has practical or fieldwork components*:  the campus indicated for an Off-Campus unit is the one at which teaching is administered from.

*Please read the Unit Introduction in the Course and Unit Handbook for attendance requirements for units offered in Off-campus mode.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).

Unit census dates currently displaying for 2017 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2017 will be available from the 1st October 2016.
