ME 242 Mechanical Engineering Systems Educational Outcomes---Fall 2005 Please circle the number that indicates how well you think you could perform each learning objective below after completing this course. Do this assuming that you would be working on a project while using an “open book” philosophy and having the appropriate time to complete the activity. 1. Assign an appropriate role to dynamic modeling and analysis in the design of a complex mechanical engineering system. 2. Define generalized velocity, displacement, force and momentum variables appropriate for the creation of approximate lumped analytic models of systems involving mechanical, hydraulic, electric and hybrid media. 3. Identify the constraints between variables implicit in the structures of mechanical engineering systems. 4. Identify and evaluate compliance and inertance energy storage elements appropriate to the lumped modeling of mechanical engineering systems. 5. Represent the models implied by items 2-4 above in the

Unformatted text preview: form of bond graphs. 6. Convert bond graphs to sets of first-order differential equations. 7. Understand static and dynamic equilibrium and, in simple cases, how to adjust an equilibrium. 8. Simulate the dynamic performance of a model represented by a set of first-order differential equations, using a computer package. 9. Linearize nonlinear models and differential equations about nominal states. 10. Solve linear differential equations with specified initial conditions and impulse, step and sinusoidal excitations, using direct, complex number and operational methods. 11. Employ the superposition idea for linear models to find the response of systems to other excitations, including the use of Fourier decomposition. With respect to the above stated course objectives what is your feeling of your summarized performance outcome?
