Module Title:Dynamics 3
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:7
Module Delivered In 2 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: The module will be delivered using lectures and tutorials with a mixture of presentations, example exercises, question and answer sessions, group discussions and online resources. Laboratory classes will be delivered to students working in groups to obtain experimental data with subsequent individual reporting/assessment.
Module Aim: • To provide the student with a specialized knowledge of the internal effects of forces applied to members in structures and mechanisms, as evidenced by the stresses and deformations produced. • To provide the student with a specialized knowledge of the external effects of forces applied to particles and to rigid links, as evidenced by the change of motion produced
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
LO1 Analyze mathematically the relationship between the motion of a particle/rigid body and the forces to which it is subjected by the appropriate methods - Force-Mass-Acceleration/Energy/Impulse/Momentum.
LO2 Analyze mathematically the applications of friction in mechanisms such as the plate and the cone-clutch.
LO3 Balance systems of rotating masses in single-plane and multi-plane applications.
LO4 Analyze mathematically the three-dimensional motion of a rigid body such as a gyroscope.
LO5 Quantify by calculation and experimental measurement the characteristic response of mechanical systems.
