Through Engineers' Eyes - Expanding the Vision: Engineering Mechanics by Experiment, Analysis and Design (FutureLearn)
Extend the basic techniques of engineering mechanics to a range of situations; interpret experiments and apply them to design. 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.



What topics will you cover?


Week 1: Gravity, finding centres of gravity

Week 2: Basic models of dry friction (Static and Kinetic), sliding/tipping, rope around bollard

Week 3: Resistance to motion, rolling friction, aerodynamic friction, work/energy/power

Week 4: Impulse-momentum, projectile motion


What will you achieve?

By the end of the course, you'll be able to...

- Investigate centres of gravity, friction and various types of resistance

- Explore the concepts of work, energy and power

- Apply these capabilities to design
