Synopsis

This module is the continuation of second year module that introduced the measurement systems to students and provided them with techniques to plan, conduct, interpret and report on experimental work. The objective in this module is to provide the students with an opportunity to apply their experimental knowledge and experience to more advanced areas or fields of fluid mechanic, strength of materials and Thermodynamics.

Outcomes

On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:

1

Plan and conduct experiments

2

Perform error calculations

3

Interpret and report on experimental data

4

Calibrate measurement instruments

Assessment

Coursework assessment: 100%
Examination: 0%

Workload requirements

The module enhances the experimental knowledge and experience of students by permitting them to conduct more complex laboratory experimental work that will expose them to advanced practical side of mechanical engineering.  There will be a combination of lectures, that will include interactive elements, and class tests. Laboratory sessions will be conducted by students working in a team. All outcomes will be assessed by means assignments, tutorials, class tests and a final examination.
