DYNM08007 2020 Dynamic Modelling and Simulation
This module is designed to use the equations from dynamics to build and test simulations.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Apply appropriate simulation strategies to assess the dynamic performances of a system against design criteria.
Have a detailed level of understanding in order to independently apply advanced simulation tools for the analysis of design and engineering problems.
Analyse and interpret data from simulation solutions, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
Demonstrate a critical awareness of the advantages and limitations of utilising simulation tools in engineering.
Demonstrate full knowledge and understanding of the new simulation technologies and tools available to simulate mechanical and engineering systems.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
In this module students will attend lectures, which will introduce key concepts, case-studies, and provide a structural context. Formative structured workshops, with software-based exercises, will underpin the link between theory and practice. Investigation, research and project work will develop the application of principles and practice.
Module Assessment Strategies
The module is 100% CA and submissions will consist of the following:
- A case-study (35%) simulating the dynamic behaviour of a mechanical assembly.
- A case-study (35%) simulating and optimising an engineering system.
- A short paper (30%, 1,000 words) discussing a new simulation technology for mechanical and engineering systems.
The learners must pass all the continuous assessment elements of the module.
Where a learner fails the CA element of the module they will be required to resubmit their work.

2019-04 Analysis of Machine Elements Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2019 SDC Publications
ISBN 9781630572341 ISBN-13 1630572349
Analysis of Machine Elements Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2019 is written primarily for first-time SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2019 users who wish to understand finite element analysis capabilities applicable to stress analysis of mechanical elements. The focus of examples is on problems commonly found in introductory, undergraduate, Design of Machine Elements or similarly named courses. In order to be compatible with most machine design textbooks, this text begins with problems that can be solved with a basic understanding of mechanics of materials. Problem types quickly migrate to include states of stress found in more specialized situations common to a design of mechanical elements course. Paralleling this progression of problem types, each chapter introduces new software concepts and capabilities. Many examples are accompanied by problem solutions based on use of classical equations for stress determination. Unlike many step-by-step user guides that only list a succession of steps, which if followed correctly lead to successful solution of a problem, this text attempts to provide insight into why each step is performed. This approach amplifies two fundamental tenets of this text. The first is that a better understanding of course topics related to stress determination is realized when classical methods and finite element solutions are considered together. The second tenet is that finite element solutions should always be verified by checking, whether by classical stress equations or experimentation. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives related to specific capabilities of the SOLIDWORKS Simulation program introduced in that chapter. Most software capabilities are repeated in subsequent examples so that users gain familiarity with their purpose and are capable of using them in future problems. All end-of-chapter problems are accompanied by evaluation "check sheets" to facilitate grading assignments.
