Computational modelling of gait analysis
Design and manufacture of innovative prosthetic/orthotic designs
This module aims to generate ability to solve the problems by applying Laws of Thermodynamics. The module extends the thermodynamic concepts taught in EG-161 to apply energy conservation principles to steady and non flow processes and use the second law of thermodynamics to quantify irreversibilities in processes. Steady flow systems such Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heat Pump are also discussed in detail along with Combustion of Fuels and Jet Engines.
The course introduces the students to experimental studies in a wide range of subjects. There are four individual experiments (HEAT/JET/STRESS/VIBRATION) Each experiment is self contained and the student will be assessed via either: - A lab report which will have a set of experiment specific questions to answer. - An online Canvas assessment. All students work is scheduled in groups and individuals will carry out four experiments. The assessments are all individually submitted. The students keep a log-book of the experimental observations and results, which is used for reference for the technical report from each experiment written-up in the week after the experiment.
The module will be presented with real life scenario of improving mechanical properties of a cast component by providing suggestions for optimising its alloy composition. The module will cover the necessary metallurgical knowledge required to review the state-of-the-art in the field. It is expected that the critical literature review will be an exemplar document for foundry process engineers and metallurgists. It should enable them to evaluate risks and opportunities in their in-process quality improvement projects within Industry 4.0 context and as required by the Clause 6.1 of ISO9001:2015 quality standard.
The course introduces the students to experimental studies in a wide range of subjects relevant to Aerospace Engineering. Each experiment is self contained and the student will present the findings in written form through a lab report (or combination of lab reports and class tests) which will have a set of experiment specific questions to answer. This written reports and class tests also forms the basis for the assessment. All students work in groups and carry out five in-situ experiments and one external experiment, however the assignments are all individually submitted. The students keep a log-book of the experimental observations and results, which is used for reference for the technical report from each experiment written-up within the fortnight after the experiment.
