ENAM12004 - Dynamics
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAM12004 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit introduces students to the analysis of the behaviour of objects in motion. They will be able to explain the motion of objects and solve problems involving objects experiencing constant linear and angular acceleration, and constant force and torque; and apply principles of conservation of momentum and energy to solve problems involving moving objects and simple machines. Students will be able to solve problems involving friction, kinematics and dynamics, and oscillatory motion, forced vibration and resonance. They will be able to analyse static and dynamic balance of shafts and determine bearing reactions. They are required to develop a capacity to work and communicate ethically and professionally, as individuals and in teams, to investigate and solve problems and present solutions professionally.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 30%
2. Written Assessment 15%
3. Written Assessment 50%
4. Written Assessment 5%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Students not aware of CQU library e-books resources. Teaching staff Provide links to CQU library's e-books that may be of help to students enrolled in the course.
Weekly reflections are extra work. Students have your say feedback Will highlight to students that reflections should not take any more than 5 minutes per week.
Assignments are too difficult and are different from tutorial questions. Students have your say feedback Assignment task difficulty will be reviewed in line with associate diploma level graduate attributes. Assignments are designed to be different in nature to the tutorial questions to test the students understanding and their ability to apply the material in the course. Tutorial questions are designed for learning while assignments are designed for assessment.
Some more worked examples would have improved understanding on how to apply the course content. Students have your say feedback Will investigate adding some challenging tutorial questions that are more similar to assignment tasks so students can see what is expected for the assignments.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Apply kinematics and dynamics to the solution of practical examples of linear and rotational motion of particles and rigid bodies.
  2. Apply the principles of conservation of momentum and energy to the solution of problems involving moving objects and simple machines.
  3. Solve problems involving the effect of friction on the motion of objects and explain these effects.
  4. Solve problems involving oscillating motion and explain the effects of oscillating motion, forced vibration and resonance on rotating machinery.
  5. Analyse static and dynamic balance of shafts and flywheels and determine bearing reactions.
  6. Communicate professionally and provide evidence of personal reflection on, and critical assessment of, team contributions and professional development.
  7. Solve problems and record and communicate, clearly and professionally, the approach used to solve problems and the reasons for adopting such approaches to problems.

The Learning Outcomes for this Unit are linked to Engineers Australia stage one competency standards for Engineering Associates.

4 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Workbook
Task Description
The Workbook provides a record and detailed diary of your learning and completed activities throughout the course. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that you have adequately studied the whole course and achieved the course learning outcomes. It is worthwhile doing a good attempt at the workbook as, if at the end of the course you are on the border line between two final grades the workbook can be used to determine if the higher grade should be awarded.

The Workbook is best handwritten and then scanned and submitted electronically. A handwritten Workbook is most appropriate and most time effective as the course involves many equations and diagrams. It is much quicker to write and sketch freehand. The presentation of the workbook is not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. Rough sketches and partial attempts/re-attempts of questions are acceptable and may add to your grade. The start of each section of work should be dated and all pages should be numbered. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of term. Show rough attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas.

In the Workbook students must record:

  • Tutorials of each week and other problems/activities given in the Moodle

In the Workbook students may also record:

  • study notes taken while studying textbooks and course resources
  • personal study summaries of key concepts
  • notes, sketches/ drawings

Assessment Due Date Exam Week Monday (12-Jun-2017) 11:45 PM AEST
Return Date to Students The grade and comments will be provided on the moodle site after the CQU Certification of Grades.
Weighting 5%
Assessment Criteria

Workbook activities guidelines:

Workbook activities are set for each week and are detailed in the Moodle.

As mentioned in the task description the presentation and accuracy of results of the workbook activities are not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. Rough sketches and partial attempts/re-attempts of questions are acceptable and may add to your grade. Workbook activities are seen as ways to stimulate your own learning rather than final work you would submit to a colleague. However there should be some attempt to set out and document your work to show your understanding. Set out and document the activities in a way you could revisit them at a later date if required. The following repeated assignment criteria will help guide the layout of your workbook activities but should not be viewed as rigid.

Accuracy and correct results

• Correct application of maths and arithmetic

• Answers clearly identified (please underline or highlight answers)

• Correct results

Evidence of correct procedures

• All necessary steps in analysis are present

• Clear presentation of mathematical and arithmetical working linking the given details of the

problem to the results obtained

• Indication of the equations used when using spreadsheets (eg Microsoft Excel) or other

software

• Evidence of checking results (mathematical, graphical, logic-common sense)

Evidence of understanding of the topic

• Explanation of any assumptions made

• Explanation of choices made in the analysis (why is this procedure is required)

• Interpretation of results, eg limitations, direction of vectors

Professional presentation

• The work (job) is clearly identified (problem, date, analyst)

• Clear statement of each problem and its details and requirements

• Logical layout of analysis

• Clear statement of equations and theory used

• Appropriate use of diagrams, clear diagrams, adequately labelled

• Correct use of terminology, conventions

• Clear English in the explanation of procedure and interpretation of results
