General Information

Overview

This unit will introduce you to the fundamental synthesis of mechanisms and machines. You will start by carrying out analysis of linkages in terms of their transmission angles, toggle positions and mobility for a certain mechanism. The kinematic analysis of any mechanism requires an acceleration analysis that depends on its position and velocity. You will be able to carry out this position, velocity, and acceleration analysis of these mechanisms (kinematic systems) using analytical equations and graphical methods. This unit will enable you to work on 3D CAD modelling and computer simulation of various mechanisms or machines. You will move on to kinetic analysis of systems thereby discussing static and dynamic balancing of rotating masses. After learning concepts of dynamics, you will study vibrations (free and forced) of single and multi-degree of freedom systems and will be able to carry out analysis of such systems using force and energy methods. Students enrolled online are required to attend a compulsory Residential School and have access to a computer and make frequent use of the internet.

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students enjoyed the synthesis and analysis of mechanical machines, and vibration/suspension.

Recommendation

The lectures will strive to improve the quality of the learning resources.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students suggested having a tutorial class in the same week of the corresponding lecture.

Recommendation

The lecture and tutorial will cover the same content in the same week. The Unit Coordinator will ensure the lecture will be held prior to the tutorial.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students pointed out that most of the assessments are placed at the end of the unit.

Recommendation

A new peer-assessment for an interim report of the final project will replace the group assessment to ensure students will start their final project earlier and will check their progress by comparing with their peers.

2 Written Assessment

Assessment Title
Interim report for Design of a walking mechanism with minimum imbalance and vibration

Task Description

Task 1: Design (or find) a 1 (or 2) DOF walking mechanism that is reasonably simple but still functional. You will need to assume the working condition of the walking mechanism, such as its walking speed, motor speed, and weight and materials of each link and the main body. This task will need to be completed concurrently with Task 2.

Design requirement

  • A 1 (or 2) degree-of-freedom walking mechanism with at least three planar links per leg
  • Constant horizontal walking speed from a constant input motor speed with an ovoid foot-path to step over obstacles
  • Provide a reasonable assumption of the mass of each link
  • Only one leg may be considered with a clear explanation about which type of full walking mechanism your design is part of
  • The foot in your design needs to touch the supporting surface for at least a half of the cycle for a 2-leg mechanism

Task 2: Demonstrate the kinematic and kinetic analysis of the design of your choice. This task will need to be completed concurrently with Task 1.

  • Simplify the mechanism of your choice and provide a schematic diagram
  • Conduct position, velocity and acceleration analyses of each link in the system
  • Present the trajectory of foot-paths and changes in velocity and acceleration for one complete cycle
  • Analyse how fast it can walk and how speed varies with the input speed
  • Verify your analytical approach using Dynamic Simulation in Autodesk Inventor

Assessment Criteria

You are required to assess your peers' interim reports as well as your own according to the following marking guideline and expected to provide sincere feedback and accurate marks for your peers. This is a valuable change for reflection after viewing other submissions. 67% of this assessment will be from the marks from your peers and the rest will be from the quality of your feedback to your peers.

- Presentation (/20)

Judge the overall report presentation. Consider:

  • Does the report overall give you a good impression?
  • Does the quality of the presentation give you confidence in the quality of the content?
  • What is the overall quality of English expression? Is technical jargon correctly used? Is the language clear and concise? 
  • Is the report correctly sectioned? Do the sections flow correctly and aid the overall argument?
  • Are figures presented in a clear way that maximises the communication of information?

Assignment#2 - Design of a suspension system

Task Description

Task 1: Design of a shock absorber system for a Segway patroller - Find the necessary stiffness and damping constant of the shock absorber system under the given conditions.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
