ENAM12004 - Dynamics

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit introduces students to the analysis of the behaviour of objects in motion. They will be able to explain the motion of objects and solve problems involving objects experiencing constant linear and angular acceleration, and constant force and torque; and apply principles of conservation of momentum and energy to solve problems involving moving objects and simple machines. Students will be able to solve problems involving friction, kinematics and dynamics, and oscillatory motion, forced vibration and resonance. They will be able to analyse static and dynamic balance of shafts and determine bearing reactions. They are required to develop a capacity to work and communicate ethically and professionally, as individuals and in teams, to investigate and solve problems and present solutions professionally.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 30%
2. Written Assessment 15%
3. Written Assessment 50%
4. Written Assessment 5%

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%).

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
Feedback on assignments were helpful to improve on the next assessment.
Recommendation
This practice will be continued in future offerings.

Feedback
The amount of work in this unit is significant. Potentially look to remove the online quizzes or the workbook. The quizzes test weekly learning, which should be enough to enable the coordinator to assess overall student progress and learning.
Recommendation
The amount of work expected from students in this is expected of the unit credit points. Weekly quizzes are designed to enable students to make steady and gradual progress. This takes only a few minutes. The record of practice problems constitutes the workbook. Both are significant to achieve the learning outcomes.

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Apply kinematics and dynamics to the solution of practical examples of linear and rotational motion of particles and rigid bodies.
  2. Apply the principles of conservation of momentum and energy to the solution of problems involving moving objects and simple machines.
  3. Solve problems involving the effect of friction on the motion of objects and explain these effects.
  4. Solve problems involving oscillating motion and explain the effects of oscillating motion, forced vibration and resonance on rotating machinery.
  5. Analyse static and dynamic balance of shafts and flywheels and determine bearing reactions.
  6. Communicate professionally and provide evidence of personal reflection on, and critical assessment of, team contributions and professional development.
  7. Solve problems and record and communicate, clearly and professionally, the approach used to solve problems and the reasons for adopting such approaches to problems.

The Learning Outcomes for this Unit are linked to Engineers Australia stage one competency standards for Engineering Associates.
