Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The concepts of equilibrium of rigid bodies, structures such as trusses, and mechanisms and the use of equilibrium equations to calculate forces due to applied loads are covered in statics. The kinematic relationship (relationship between displacement, velocity and acceleration and the relationship between forces and acceleration (Newton's laws of motion)) and energy methods are covered in dynamics.

Paper Structure

This is taught through pre-recorded short videos that should be watched prior to associated 'lecture discussion' which facilitate active learning covering example problems supported by the lecturer (lecture discussion should be attended in person if possible, they will also be recorded on panopto). Tutorials will help students use this knowledge in assignments and practical labs will see the implementation and advancement of the understanding of the topics. Note that two textbooks by R. C. Hibbeler are recommended for this paper.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

The syllabus for the tests may include material that is covered up to and including the week before the test. The format will be discussed in class prior to the tests.

Tutorial assignments and practical labs form an important part of the paper, they allow you to practice important concepts and therefore help you cement your knowledge and prepare for tests.

Group project report facilitates the development of technical writing and enhance the communication skills.
