Module Title LI Mechanics 2 School of Engineering Mechanical Engineering 04 30368 TBC Intermediate Level 20 Semester 1 LC Mechanics 1 - (04 30330) Passing the written exam and the laboratory assessment is required in order to pass the module. Lecture-20 hours Tutorial-20 hours Practical Classes and workshops-12 hours Guided independent study-148 hours Total: 200 hours The aim of the module is to enhance students' knowledge and understanding of the mathematics and scientific principles related to mechanics and materials, and to develop their ability to apply this knowledge in a number of topics. Syllabus Static analysis of stress in solid mechanics, including use of Mohr's Circle, maximum shear stress, strain energy and von Mises failure criterion, energy methods, Castigliano's Theorem for beam deflection, analysis of thin walled vessels. Vector analysis of the dynamics (both kinematics and kinetics) of two-dimensional rigid body systems with applications to simple linked systems of rods, gears and wheels. By the end of the module students should be able to: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the mathematical and scientific principles that underpin static analysis of stress in solid mechanics and vector analysis of the dynamics (both kinematics and kinetics) of two-dimensional rigid body systems. Understand and apply engineering principles related to static analysis of stress in solid mechanics, including stress transformation theory, Mohrâ€™s circle, pressure vessel stress theory, failure theory, Castiglianos Theorem for beam deflection and apply them to analyse key engineering designs. Understand and apply engineering principles related to scalar & vector analysis of the dynamics (both kinematics and kinetics) of two-dimensional rigid body systems and apply them to analyse key engineering designs. Demonstrate the ability to use the results of mechanical analysis to solve engineering problems and to recommend appropriate action. Demonstrate laboratory and practical skills. 30368-01 : Exam : Exam (Centrally Timetabled) - Written Unseen (90%) 30368-02 : Lab Report : Coursework (10%) Assessments: (40%) Timed continuous assessment/end of module; (10%) Assessment of Laboratory work; (50%) 2-hour Closed book centrally timetabled exam in January assessment period (replaced by online assessment if closed book exam not possible) Supplementary/Reassessment: Reassessment to match the main assessment method with due consideration made to any restrictions imposed at the time of reassessment. Students can carry forward passed assessment components from main assessment. Duplicate of Birmingham-based module 23777
