Analysis of Machines and Structures (JEE332) is an intermediate unit that introduces students to the linearized, elastic analysis techniques required for the design of Machines and Structures used in maritime engineering projects. Building upon the knowledge gained in Dynamics and combining it with the concepts gained in Introduction to Maritime Science, Engineering and Technology and Mechanics of Solids, the students are introduced to new theories and techniques required to make engineering decisions and calculations in the design of statically indeterminate structures and mechanical components with a special focus on dynamic response analysis. The knowledge gained in this unit will become the foundation for latter specialized structural analysis and design units of the Naval Architecture, Marine and Offshore Engineering and Ocean Engineering specialisations.

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.
ILO 1 Apply basic and advanced structural analysis methodologies to the design of complex statically indeterminate structural systems used in ships, maritime onshore and offshore installations.
ILO 2 Select suitable mathematical models of the vibrational response of a physical system and apply them to solve problems related to the moving components of rotating and reciprocating marine machinery with special emphasis on vibration and noise control on maritime infrastructure.
ILO 3 Analyse, discuss and apply load cases, prescribed by national standards, Classification Societies and statutory regulations, in the design of maritime structures and marine machinery and demonstrate awareness of the ethical and sustainability implications of this process.
