- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Dr Kayvan Pazouki
- Lecturer: Dr Rosemary Norman
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
A1. To introduce modelling methods and apply them to marine engineering systems.
A2. To introduce the concept and to apply non-linear computer simulation to analyse marine engineering systems.
Outline Of Syllabus
The module introduces modelling methods and applies them to marine engineering systems. It introduces the concept and application of non-linear computer simulation to analyse marine engineering systems. Topics include: lumped element, lumped systems, solution methods, Labview simulation language, first order system models, second order system models, lineraization, state space representation of dynamic systems, introduction to systems control, modelling mechanical and hydraulic systems.
The tutorial material will cover application of theory covered in the lectures to mechanical and engineering modelling and simulation problems. The assignments will cover different aspects of the lecture course material. The laboratory study will cover modelling and control design of a dynamic system. Simulation and analysis of the dynamic system using Labview and Simulink.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lectures as the principal teaching method is justified by the need to assist students in the acquisition of a knowledge base that will facilitate understanding of a sizeable detailed body of materials (IKO 1 - 2).
Tutorials provide a forum in which students are given the opportunity to develop subject-specific skills, negotiate their problems with tutors and their peers in a less formal approach (ISO 1 - 2).
Practical laboratory (Computer Class) work will be conducted. The experimental experience is a key aspect of the course. It develops practical skills, demonstrates the relevance of the lecture material and provides practice in computer-based analysis and performance calculations.
The independent study time is essential for students to work through the lecture material, self-assessed practical work, tutorial and past examination questions repeatedly, in their own time and at their own pace, until the thoroughly understand the material. Through this work students will obtain an in-depth comprehension rather than simply memorising how to solve a particular problem; will nurture their skills in analysis and problem solving and will develop a mature approach to time allocation and personal discipline.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination affords students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and possession of subject specific and key skills. The medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within a syllabus.
The Coursework affords students an opportunity to demonstrate written communication, planning and organising, problem solving, numeracy and computer literacy and associated cognitive skills. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
