UG Coursework Unit
Introduces the design of mechanical systems. Students work in teams to address a design brief. Scope includes full mechanical design and detailing of workshop-ready engineering drawings, complete specification of material selection and manufacturing processes, risk and safety assessments, systems integration, model-based design using CAD, and design for functionality, reliability and manufacturing. Cost is estimated.
- Fundamentals of professional drawing
- Design of rolling contact and journal bearings
- Design of gears and gear trains
- Design of clutches, brakes and couplings
- Design of fly wheels and belt drives
- Design of roller chains and wire ropes
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||communicate collaboratively mechanical engineering ideas and design concepts through engineering graphics, oral presentations and written reports|
|2||generate and develop design concepts|
|3||produce engineering drawings to Australian Standard AS1100|
|4||analyse a complex problem by separating it to its individual components|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
