Course/Module

Tutor, 1M Solid Mechanics. (Undergraduate)

Supervisor, MSc. (Postgraduate)

Stress Analysis 3A - MECH60014

Aims

The aim of the course is to reinforce the student's knowledge of stress analysis, to extend this knowledge to more advanced theories and techniques and to apply these to practical problems. Most of these will be developments of methods which have been previously acquired but applied to more sophisticated problems. New areas of thermal stresses, plastic deformation and residual stresses will be treated and a new technique of analysis using energy methods will also be introduced and developed.

ECTS units:   5

Role

Associate Course Leader

Stress Analysis 1 - MECH40005

Aims

This module introduces the basic concepts and methods of stress analysis. It explains the mathematical descriptions of stress analysis and demonstrates the physical significance of stress and strain and the importance and application of Hooke's Law.

We introduce the fundamental concepts of elasticity including Youngs Modulus and Poission ratio.

We use these descriptions to show how to solve a range of stress analysis problems including plane frames, stress and strain, pressure vessels and beams.

Mechanical Transmissions Technology - MECH97020

Aims

This course aims to cover the fundamental aspects of design and technology of mechanical transmission systems. It is intended to develop students’ skills in various engineering science disciplines (primarily stress analysis and materials) into a capability to design and analyse geared drive systems. It provides a theoretical and practical understanding of geared mechanical transmission systems and of operation, manufacture, failure modes and health monitoring of individual machine elements that make up such a system including gears, bearings, seals and lubrication systems.

ECTS units:    10

Tribology A - MECH60019

Aims

The overall aim of the Tribology Course is to provide students with a general and useful introduction to the main concepts and principles of Tribology (friction, lubrication and wear), with particular emphasis on lubricated systems. It is recognised that the field of Tribology is very large and multidisciplinary and that it is thus impossible to cover all aspects of the subject adequately. Instead the Tribology Course focuses on those areas of Tribology particularly relevant to the design and performance of lubricated machine components. The Course covers the underlying principles and provides an extensive set of handout notes and references aimed at assisting students comprehend and address tribological problems that they may meeting in their future engineering careers, even those outside the areas directly covered by the Course.
