Engineering Dynamics ENG105

Hobart

Introduction

In this unit you will develop knowledge and skills for solving problems in engineering dynamics based on fundamental theory developed using Newtonian Mechanics with an introductory focus on particle kinematics and kinetics. This is undertaken by applying theory to solve dynamics problems based on Newton Mechanics as well as practical implementation based on undertaking laboratory experiments. The unit prepares you for all specialisations of the degree by providing a broader overview of dynamics relevant to all disciplines in particular the field of mechanical engineering.

Note

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

Learning Outcomes

1. Solve common engineering dynamics problems using fundamental theory based on Newtonian Mechanics.

2. Apply practical techniques for the measurement and/or analysis of dynamics based problems.

3. Collect and/or analyse experimental or theoretical data as an individual or within a team context.

4. Communicate a set of conclusions in a professional laboratory report utilising data collected in a laboratory experiment.
