MAR2020 : Applications of Engineering II

Semesters
Semester 2 Credit Value: 10
ECTS Credits: 5.0

Aims

To undertake four practical engineering exercises in the following topics:

A1 – Marine Engineering
A2 – Naval Architecture (Ship Stability)
A3 – Marine Structures
A4 – Hydrodynamics

Outline Of Syllabus

A1 – Marine Engineering Pump Laboratory - The laboratory based practical provides an opportunity for practical application of marine engineering principles. It develops practical skills and demonstrates the relevance of taught material in MAR2002. In addition it highlights the differences between pure theory and practical application and provides the students with the opportunity to develop systematic scientific methods, including data collection, recording and data analysis under time-limited conditions.

A2 - Marine vehicle flooding test – The practical is based in the hydrodynamic laboratories and provides an opportunity for practical application of principles taught in MAR2008. The practical examines and test asymmetrical flooding of a ship model. Students are required to calculate heel and trim and other related flooding issues and compare with experimental results.

A3 - Structural design, make, test – The practical utilises fundamental structural data to design a truss structure of minimum weight to support a specified load. This develops and demonstrates the practical application of material taught in MAR2006/7. The designed structure is fabricated and then tested to destruction. Students present their structural design and develop a structural indicator to assess the truss performance.

A4 – Marine vehicle resistance test – The practical takes place in the towing tank to introduce students to measurement, data collection and data analysis techniques for a ship resistance test. This develops and demonstrates the practical application of material taught in MAR2001/10.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

The module will consist of 4 practical elements which are supported through introductory lectures and tutorials to provide the easiest way for students to assimilate the knowledge content and define the scope of each of the syllabus topics (IKO1-4).

The independent study time is essential for students to work through the lecture material, in their own time and within teams (ISO1-4).

Assessment Methods

The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship

The practical experiments assess the students' ability to perform a piece of work, including experimental measurements, calculations, interpretation and presentation. Practical experiments also asses the students' ability to perform work as part of a team.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
