Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to provide students with an understanding of structural and material behaviour, failure modes and the design of simple structures and machine components.

 
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
 
1. Analyse structural and material behaviour (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
2. Apply failure theories in the design of simple structures and machine components (K2, K3, K6, S1, S3)
3. Apply relevant standards and codes of practice in the design of simple structures and machine components (K3, K6, S1, S3)
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 high quality reports (A2, A7)
