Maritime Dynamics and Waves JEE254

Introduction

This unit aims to introduce students to the fundamental knowledge and tools required for the analysis of oscillating systems within the maritime engineering field. Students will be required to perform calculations enabling them to model systems such as ocean waves using differential equations, vector calculus and spectral analysis techniques. Students will apply these skills in the design of experiments to investigate engineering problems at both model and full scale. This unit prepares students for analysing a wide range of maritime engineering problems including structural motions, vibration and heat and fluid transfer.

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.
