Students considering registering for this course would normally be expected to have completed intermediate level courses in dynamics, fluid mechanics and engineering mathematics (MECH2004, MECH2006 and MECH2007) although exposure to advanced level courses in these topics would be advantageous.
The course is delivered in a series of lectures organised in blocks and each covering a specific component of a power train system, while emphasis is placed on consideration of the complete system.
The coursework is based on a series of lectures concerned with RAM and is divided into two exercises: the first a group activity and the second more substantial project undertaken individually.
