In this unit you will develop knowledge and skills for solving problems in mechanical engineering specifically in the field of dynamics and vibration, this building on the theory of Newtonian Mechanics applied to the analysis of rigid body kinematics and kinetics. This is undertaken by applying theory to solve advanced dynamics problems involving rigid body motion and vibration through technical analysis as well as practical implementation based on undertaking laboratory experiments specific to the field of mechanical engineering. The unit prepares you for all disciplines in the degree and assists you in making a decision on the mechanical engineering specialisation.

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.

* 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 2020 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2020 will be available from the 1st October 2020.
1. Solve mechanical engineering problems involving rigid body motion and vibration using advanced theory based on Newtonian Mechanics.
2. Apply practical techniques for the measurement and/or analysis of mechanical engineering based problems involving dynamics and vibration.
3. Collect and/or analyse experimental or theoretical data as an individual or within a team context.
4. Formulate a series of clear conclusions and justifications in a professional laboratory report based on advanced theory for comparison to interpreted experimental results.
