ENMM20031 - Condition Monitoring and Tribology

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit is focused on the tribological principles to understand fundamentals of friction, wear and lubrication aspects of a machine. The knowledge of tribology will help student analysing root cause of failures and also in selecting an appropriate condition monitoring technique to predict failures. The unit will provide adequate knowledge to use condition monitoring as a maintenance strategy. Students will acquire adequate skills to select a suitable condition monitoring technique from a variety of techniques such as; sensory and function inspection; vibration monitoring; infrared thermography; oil analysis; acoustic emission; stress, strain, displacement; non-destructive testing/inspection; electrical equipment performance analysis; and performance monitoring in general.

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 Postgraduate 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 20%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Presentation and Written Assessment 60%

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%).
