How can you ensure that your design will perform well and be safe?
In this course, you will learn analytical skills, use them to understand experiments and apply them in design. You will be living in the engineer’s world.
Following on from our companion course Through Engineers’ Eyes: Introducing the Vision, the emphasis in this course is on application of basic engineering mechanics. You will find centres of gravity by experiments on model gliders, learn about friction as you apply it to designing a belt drive, and analyse car performance using concepts of work, energy and power.
The course is for anyone interested in engineering mechanics.
Participants will need to have basic mathematical skills and access to a scientific calculator.
- Investigate centres of gravity, friction and various types of resistance
- Explore the concepts of work, energy and power
- Apply these capabilities to design
