Paper Description
Following topics are included in this paper: concepts of forces, moments, equilibrium, free body diagrams, Newton’s laws, work, energy, impulse, momentum of a rigid body and fundamental vibration systems including single, two and multidegree of freedom systems. Forced vibrations is also covered.
Lectures will be held at the designated rooms below. There will be two workshops/Tutorials where the students will be taken through the lab exercises and some tutorial problems. Lecture notes and Panopto recordings of each lecture will be made available after each lecture.
Paper Structure
There will be 3 lectures/week which the students are to attend and 1 workshop/week. There will be two workshop streams, one on Mondays at 1012 noon and the second stream on Thursdays from 122 pm and the students will be allowed to select and choose the stream they would like to attend.
Solidworks and MATLAB are two major software for the lab sessions. Students should have access to these software (links will be made available).
In total, 3 lab reports and 1 assignments will need to submitted. There will be a penalty of 5% for each day after the deadline has passed. No more than 5 daylate submissions will be allowed, except for under special circumstances for which approval has been given by the paper convener.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
The assessment of this paper comprises one assignment, three lab reports and four tests. There is NO final examination.
All tests are compulsory. Students must submit an "Extension of Deadline/Special Consideration form" if they cannot attend these tests. Otherwise, these tests will be considered as "Failing to complete" and results in an IC grade.
The tests are open book and all questions should be attempted.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
