ANP101 Applied Mechanics

Presents the concepts of the statics of rigid bodies and develops techniques for the analysis of simple structures and frames and outlines the principles of linear and curvilinear motion of particles and rigid bodies relating their subsequent motion to the causal forces. Studies cover: analysis of mechanisms and machines; linear motion; velocity diagrams for simple coplanar mechanisms; force systems; equilibrium; free body diagrams; analysis of statically determinate trusses, frames and machines; curvilinear motion, rectangular, intrinsic and polar coordinates; effective force diagrams and their use in the solution of translation and fixed axis rotation problems; principles of work and energy applied to conservative and non-conservative force systems; principles of impulse and momentum applied to linear systems; shear force and bending moment diagrams for bars; Engineer's Theory of Bending.

ANP104 Engineering Workshop

Introduces basic workshop processes and procedures. Studies cover: workshop safety, procedures and practices; use of metrological equipment to demonstrate common measuring and gauging techniques with particular regard to accuracy; exercises in common welding and cutting processes using a range of materials; instruction in the use of hand tools, drills, lathes, shaping machines, surface grinders and CNC equipment; and a series of lectures on cutting tool materials, cutting tools and grinding wheels.

ANP105 Chemistry and Materials

Develops a conceptual framework to help students understand and be able to select from the vast range of engineering materials available. Studies cover: service conditions (e.g. simple stress, electrical potential, magnetic fields are defined); fundamental properties and testing; structure from atomic, through crystal/molecular to micro- and macro-structure; electron behaviour; phase diagrams; defects and dislocations; degradation and corrosion; modification of structure (e.g. heat treatments); effects on society and the environment - using common representative materials from the metals/polymers/ceramics/composites to demonstrate the above. Studies also cover the chemical, mechanical and electrical aspects of materials; Periodic Table; phases of state, bonding, redox reactions, acid bases and pH; molecular structure; reaction kinetics and thermodynamics; ideal gas laws; and carbon chemistry.
