Content

This unit will study advanced aspects of modelling and simulation related to mechanical engineering. The unit will utilise and build upon the knowledge you have gained in your previous studies on material behaviour, dynamics, solid mechanics, and computer aided engineering. The main topics covered are: advanced modelling of mechanical dynamic systems, and non-linear finite element analysis. Via a project-based approach, you will develop fundamental understanding of these two key simulation areas, as well as the ability to use this knowledge for the analysis of real world problems.   In the practical classes, students will also use experimental methods to provide context to and validation of the numerical analyses conducted during this unit. The mix of theoretical, numerical and experimental work will provide a good base for future career development in the advanced CAE area.

Assessment

2 x projects (40% each) 80%, theory-based assignment 20%
