This unit of competency covers the application of mechanics and strength of materials principles to devices, machines and systems and their components in order to identify key mechanical properties. It includes a range of basic analyses of static and dynamic loads and moments, stresses and deflections, velocities and accelerations.
This unit applies to analysis of mechanical devices, machines and systems and their components to determine a range of mechanical related properties. It covers the analysis of2-D forces and moments, stresses and deflections on bodies, frames and beams. It is suitable for people working as technicians in engineering or related fields using basic mechanics principles and those pursuing careers and qualifications in engineering or related disciplines.
