ENEM12010 - Engineering Dynamics

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will apply Newtonian Physics to solve physical situations in engineering. This unit follows on from Year 1 Engineering Mechanics unit (where you have assessed physical situations in static equilibrium) and considers systems that are not in equilibrium i.e., respond to unbalanced forces that induce an acceleration in the system. You will study pure kinematics (a mathematical description of motion only) of particles and rigid bodies and kinetics, to determine motion in problems using Motion & Energy equations in 2D planar mechanisms,) particles and rigid bodies. The unit concludes with an introduction to mechanical vibrations.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability.

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. Online Quiz(zes) 10%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Written Assessment 20%
4. Examination 50%

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%).

Unit learning Outcomes

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

  1. Apply basic kinematics concepts such as displacement, velocity and acceleration to predict the motion of bodies
  2. Apply basic kinetics concepts such as force, momentum, work and energy to predict the motion of bodies
  3. Apply Newton’s laws of motion and the work-energy principle to particles dynamic systems, impulse-momentum principle and coefficient of restitution
  4. Apply principles of planar kinematics and kinetics of a rigid body
  5. Derive the equations of motion for single degree freedom systems due to mechanical vibrations
  6. Work effectively as individual and part of a team
  7. Communicate effectively with colleagues and peers

Learning outcomes are linked to Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competencies and also discipline capabilities. You can find the mapping for this on the Engineering Undergraduate Course website.
