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, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), marine electrical systems, and propulsion systems.
The intensive learning sessions begin with learning activities on representations of dynamic systems, theory modelling of marine systems and numerical methods. Topics on theoretical modelling and simulation techniques lead on to programming activities with MATLAB and Simulink. The MALTAB and Simulink simulation programs can be used to predict dynamics of marine systems and they are validated with realistic marine systems.

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.

* 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 2022 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2022 will be available from the 1st October 2021.
- 1. Apply engineering principles in theoretical modelling of marine systems;
- 2. Apply simulation techniques, including numerical methods and block diagrams, in development of computer simulation programs for marine systems;
- 3. Develop MATLAB programming skills for simulation of marine systems;
- 4. Develop Simulink programming skills for simulation of marine systems; and
- 5. Use computer simulation programs to learn behaviour and characteristics of the simulated marine systems under varying conditions.
