Summary

 

Machine Dynamics and Vibrations A - MECH60001

Aims

The course aims to enable students to evaluate the dynamic response requirements of a proposed machine design and to produce workable proposals for its safe and effective operation. It will build on the second year Mechatronics and Solid Mechanics courses, introducing a greater range of examples where the dynamic response of a machine must be controlled and making the link between vibration and fatigue failure. This will involve some new subject matter in the vibration of continuous systems, rotor dynamics, signal processing and control analysis. A key aspect of the course is to demonstrate practical vibration measurements and to compare them to solutions of an idealised system in MATLAB. They will also deal with realistic problems involving the assessment of the fatigue life of structures subject to vibration and static loading.

Professional Engineering Skills 3 - MECH60015

Aims

This module is comprised of two parts: (a) Engineering in a commercial environment which aims to provide an awareness and basic understanding of some of the non-engineering  aspects that will be encountered by professional engineers working in a professional environment.  The main topics include: engineering finance; project management;ethics and professional responsibillity and intellectual property. (b) A literature research project which aims to develop efficient use of the extensive facilities available for research on a given subject, to develop a critical attitude to information sources, an ethical attitude to attributing them and a systematic method for citing them and to stimulate interest in a given engineering-related, technical subject by studying it in depth
