Module Description:This subject equips the student with a fundamental understanding of mechanical problems. It will provide the student with the analytical and practical skills for solving problems in this field. This forms the basis for further study in their final year.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Calculate basic Working Stress and Strain; Young's Modulus; Poisson Ratio in simple engineering problems.
LO2 Perform calculations for material shearing operations such as guillotine, punch press.
LO3 Analyse elastic stress and strain in compound bars.
LO4 Calculate temperature stress and strain in simple and compound bars.
LO5 Draw shear force and bending moment diagrams for simply supported, statically determinate beams.
LO6 Determine the bending stress in simply supported beams under various loading conditions.
LO7 Perform and analyse problems using Simple Theory of Torsion
LO8 Calculate the shear stress due to torsion in compound shafts.
LO9 Execute appropriate safety procedures and standards whilst using laboratory equipment.
