Module Author: Andrew Cashman
Module Description: This module applies the fundamental principles of kinematics and kinetics of rigid bodies to real world engineering problems. This module may be delivered in a half semester time frame.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Simplify real world dynamics problems by applying an appropriate mathematical formulation, solve, interpret the results and communicate findings.
LO2 Analyse both linear and angular displacements, velocities and accelerations of rigid bodies 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 effect of forces on two dimensional motion of rigid bodies.
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).

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.
