Aims and objectives
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Analyse structural and material behaviour. (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
2. Apply relevant standards and codes of practice in the design of structures and machine components. (K3, S1, S3)
3. Use finite element package to determine stress and deformation of practical machine components and structures (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
4. Safely execute experiments, analyse and interpret results and errors, and formulate conclusions (K2, K6, S1, A7)
5. Conduct laboratory activities as part of a team and generate individual high quality reports. (A2, A7)
