In this course, that might be the advanced part of the Engineering, the focus will be on in depth engineering statics, use of free body diagrams, applications of Newton laws in structural analysis, etc. This is followed by analysis of deflections, support reactions, shear/moment diagrams and relating stress developments within the beams to enable us to effectively and efficiently select a suitable beam.
Dynamics analysis, that is the extended form of statics, takes into considerations the importance of moving systems undergoing accelerations, impacts and its instantaneous momentum. Several real life situations will be modelled ranging from mechanical gear box dynamics analysis to impact forces during accidents and so on.
The course will have a major project that will be given to students that includes gearbox, clutch and bearing selection, shaft designs, use of safety factors in calculations, structural analysis, Application of finite element methods (FEA) in structural and accidents simulations, etc.
