Modelling Physical Systems

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

BSc in Medialogy or equivalent

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objectives:

The module gives an in-depth introduction to modelling of physical systems and the analogies between dynamics systems such as mechanical, hydraulic, electronic, and acoustic systems.

Constructing and modelling physical systems requires an understanding of basic kinematics and kinetics. In turn, models of dynamic systems have analogies that can be described by the same underlying mathematics. Students who complete this module will understand the basics of mechatronic systems and the analogy between various dynamic systems.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

Students who complete the module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Must have knowledge about the kinematics of particles
  • Must have knowledge about the kinetics of particles
  • Must be able to understand the analogy between various dynamic systems, i.e. electronic,mechanical and hydraulic systems
  • Must be able to understand how to model the kinematics and kinetics of simple mechanical systems

Skills

Students who complete the module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Must be able to apply knowledge to the creation of free body diagrams of dynamic systems
  • Must be able to understand how to calculate and model forces of dynamic systems
  • Must be able to select and apply methods for modelling the analogy between various dynamic systems i.e. electronic, mechanical and hydraulic systems

Competences

Students who complete the module will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Must be able to understand how to collaborate within teams designing, building and modelling physical artefacts
  • Must be able to synthesize methods for modelling of physical systems and analogies between various dynamic systems such as electronic and hydraulic systems
