Modelling and Simulation

In this course, various numerical analysis tools: scientific numerical computing, dynamic simulation, and finite element analysis software, are introduced. How to identify model geometry, boundary conditions, and material propcrties are discussed considering the physical interpretation ofproblems. The interpretation ofsimulation results is also discussed 1. Understand the operation of finite element methods, scientific numerical, and dynamic simulation software. 2. Create 2-dimensional geometry models, and define boundary conditions. 3. Obtain analytical solutions and compare with numerical simulation solutions.

The course “Tribology” provides a basic knowledge on contact, friction, wear and lubrication. Besides the basic knowledge described above, this course would provide the example of practical application of tribology. 1. Differentiate and explain technical terms in tribology field. 2. Analyze and explain the functions of tribological phenomena appeared in industrial products. 3. Select the suitable model of the simple contact, sliding or rolling contact phenomena using fundamental tribology knowledge. 4. Combine the fundamental scientific knowledge and the problems in the modern tools which is necessary in tribology field.

Vibration and Noise

This course is to familiarize the students with the sources of vibration and noise and expose the students to the fundamental of mechanical vibrations and noise engineering. It provides the students with the tools essential to tackle the problem of vibrations produced in machines and structures due to unbalance forces, vibrations isolation, two degree of freedom system, multi-degree of freedom system and continuous system. A noise part is devoted to sound level and subjective response to sound, noise, effects, ratings and regulations and Noise: sources, isolation and control. 1. Define the concepts of vibration and noise 2. Analyse and formulate the system from single degree to multi degree of freedom systems and practice case studies on the field of vibration and noise. 3. Present the sources of noise and vibrations and presents clearly the methods to control it.
