Course Description


 


This course builds on an earlier course, Engineering Mechanics I course. It covers the dynamics part of mechanics. The course deals with motions of particles and rigid bodies under external forces; it also deals with the influence of vibration on mechanical systems.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

To develop the ability, in the engineering student, to understand, formulate, and solve a given problem in a logical manner and to apply it to solve a few basic problems in engineering mechanics.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

  •   State and apply the laws of motions
  • Apply accurately the relevant units and dimensions Analyse the kinetics and kinematics of particles Learning Outcomes:
  •   State and apply the laws of motions
  •  Apply accurately the relevant units and dimensions
  •  Analyse the kinetics and kinematics of particles

Learning Outcomes:

A student on completing this course is expected to acquire knowledge of relating dynamic

principles of mechanics to engineering applications through the development of the capacity to predict the effects of force and motion while carrying out the creative design functions of engineering
