Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The concepts of equilibrium of rigid bodies, structures such as trusses, and mechanisms and the use of equilibrium equations to calculate forces due to applied loads are covered in statics. Free body diagrams, a fundamental tool for Engineers, are used extensively in the paper. The kinematic relationship (relationship between displacement, velocity and acceleration and the relationship between forces and acceleration (Newton's laws of motion)) and energy methods are covered in dynamics.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
This is taught through lectures, tutorials and practical labs and a project. Lectures will facilitate active learning, and include worked problems. Note that two textbooks by R. C. Hibbeler are recommended for this paper.

Assessment Components

Edit Assessments Content

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
