ENG08033 2019 Design, Analysis and Simulation 402
This module builds on the Engineering Design, Analysis & Simulation 401 module for more advanced investigation of design analysis and optimisation, component and material selection and the application of CAE techniques to the engineering design process within a project based learning context.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Apply knowledge and understanding of systematic design techniques.
Recognise the application of engineering science to engineering design.
Analyse machine structures.
Operate engineering software (including spreadsheets, CAD and FEA software) to aid the process of detailed engineering design and optimisation.
Produce a professional report on the detailed design process including the structured presentation of computer-generated graphical output.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
The module will be taught using problem based-learning and demonstrations.
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. It will include problem based-learning and assignments.
Module Assessment Strategies
Continuous assessment (100%).
Repeat assessment will require the student to resubmit a design report.
Design project involving detailed design and optimisation of a machine – with application of spreadsheets for 2D force and stress analysis; component and materials selection; and 3D modelling and analysis.
Production of a detailed design report.
Analysis and Simulation
Simulate aspects of the machine design, e.g., using Finite Element Analysis / Computational Fluid Dynamics.
