To develop a sound understanding of the principles of mechanics.

Learning outcomes

  • Demonstrate the correct use of analysing forces and moments in mechanical systems
  • Calculate indirect stresses (bending and torsion) in mechanical components and select appropriate sections from standard tables
  • Demonstrate an understanding of energy in mechanical system, including the Conservation of energy theory
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the forces, moments and torques resulting from linear acceleration, rotational acceleration, and centripetal acceleration
