Paper Description
This paper applies the fundamentals theory taught in ENGEN110, ENGEN111 and ENGEN180 to understand the operational principles of electromechanical machines and power transmission mechanisms. Problembased learning is used in conjunction with experimentation to compare theory to real machine behaviors. This paper covers analysis of machine systems and selection of power sources and matching transmission components. Important power transmission components are covered including gearboxes, gears, chains, belts, couplings, shafts, clutches, brakes, bearings, pneumatics and hydraulics.
Paper Structure
Students attend 2 one hour lectures and a 2 hour laboratory/problem solving session each week. The lecture slots may be used as problem solving session depending on the topic being discussed. This paper emphasizes practical application of the theoretical knowledge through experimentation and problem solving during the laboratory session.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 100:0. There is no final exam.
