Paper Description
The paper covers stress and strain transformations, failure criteria, unsymmetrical bending, curved beam, transverse shear, fatigue, materials selection and materials testing. By the end of the course students will have the essential knowledge and skills needed in designing components and structures in most engineering situations.
Paper Structure
Topics in this paper are taught through lectures and laboratory sessions.
This paper is taught through lectures and laboratory sessions on the Hamilton campus.
Where practical, inperson participation in the oncampus activities (Lectures and Laboratories) is strongly encouraged.
Video recordings of lectures will be made available for those not attending oncampus (Online versions of other paper activities can be made available casebycase basis or in the event of another Lockdown).
Due to the risk of further Lockdowns and other disruptions in 2021, there maybe ongoing changes to the timetable. Moodle Announcements will be used to inform of any timetable changes.Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
This paper facilitates development of technical writing and/or oral presentations, an important competency expectation of engineers and scientists. To pass this paper, students are expected to demonstrate their ability to produce written work of an adequate standard.
Assessment items in this paper contribute to the development of Washington Accord Graduate Attributes. Most assessment items in this paper contribute to WA1 (Engineering Knowledge) and WA2 (Problem Analysis). The materials selection assignment contributes to WA3 (Design/development of Solutions) and WA10 (Communication).
The final exam is closed book, with the candidates being required to answer five out of a total of eight questions. The topics covered will reflect the whole course.
A minimum mark of 40% in the examination is required in order to receive a paper passing grade.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
