Title:Engineering Dynamics 1
Long Title:Engineering Dynamics 1
Module Code:MECH7026
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2016/17 ( September 2016 )
Module Delivered in 1 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: GER KELLY
Module Author: Andrew Cashman
Module Description: The module develops the fundamental principles of the dynamics of particles and particle systems. The application of these principles to practical engineering problems is emphasised.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Describe real world dynamics problems using fundamental mathematical approaches.
LO2 Analyse velocity and acceleration of particles and particle systems by applying the principles of kinematics.
LO3 Apply appropriate methods such as Newton's second law, work and energy principles, and impulse and momentum methods to analyse the kinetics of particles and particle systems.
LO4 Undertake experimental analysis of various machine systems, writing clear and concise laboratory reports to communicate findings.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
N/A
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
N/A
Co-requisite Modules
No Co-requisite modules listed
Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
