ModuleDescription/Aims:

The student should be able to gain an insight into some of the areas of
machine design, by considering, both from a static and dynamic viewpoint,
how components behave when subjected to loading. This knowledge should
aidinthetechnicalanalysisandsizingofcomponentsthatmayberequiredin
level7finalprojects.
