Unit Code: MCD652

Unit Name: Applied Mechanics II: Dynamics

Description: Engineering technologists are expected to understand the concepts involved in studying the motion of matter. This course will enable you to understand the concepts of force and acceleration relationships, inertia, work and energy, impulse and momentum and the kinetic and dynamic parameters of mechanical system elements. You will learn to solve engineering problems involving only motion and the forces causing that motion. You will also be able to model and analyse mechanical linkages.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, mechanical and material sciences and an engineering specialization as specified to wide practical procedures and practices. 2. Identify and analyse well-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using codified methods of analysis specific to their field of activity. 3. Function effectively as an individual, and as a member in diverse technical teams. 4. Communicate effectively on well-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend the work of others, document their own work, and give and receive clear instructions. 5. Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent updating in the context of specialized technical knowledge 6. Applies independent learning practices.
