MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

are optional subjects in mathematics, business administration, engineering production, history and philosophy of science and human engineering.

On completion of the course undergraduates receive the Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. There are no separate courses for Pass and Honours, and results of the final examinations determine whether a student graduates with the Pass degree or whether he is awarded first, second or third class honours.

Post-graduate Research Facilities

On completion of the undergraduate course excellent facilities are available for graduates to proceed by research to the higher degrees of M.Eng.Sc. and Ph.D. Reference should be made to the Research and Investigation Report for information regarding current research activities carried out in the mechanical engineering department.

The

following

projects were under way in 1967.

Shape and gauge problems in hot and cold metal rolling; high strain rate forming of metals; oblique cutting with a single cutting edge; effect of tool form and workpiece geometry

in

metal cutting; economic selection of machining conditions; mechanics of the milling process; orthogonal cutting with variable depth of cut; mechanics of the drilling process; anisotropy and the Bauschinger effect in cold worked metals; a model for work hardening and the Bauschinger effect; fluid jet amplifier characteristics; noise in fluid jet amplifiers; optimal control systems; quenching in higher order systems;

Lyapunov function generation; combustion in spark ignition engines; study of discharge coefficients in sub-critical flow; Roots blower performance; flow measurement using radio-tracer techniques; boundary layers in turbo-machinery; three dimensional turbulent boundary layers; frictional resistance and heat transfer in rough wall turbulent boundary layers; frictional resistance of ships; boundary layers in curved channels; the concept of hydraulic diameter; steerability

of

motor cars; design of road curves; assembly line balancing; prevalence of incentive systems used in local industry; development of

a

high pressure-low capacity

oil

pump.

The mechanical engineering department has recently been transferred to a new five- storey building equipped with special laboratories for expansion of post-graduate work.

Human Engineering

Within the framework of the mechanical engineering course a study is made of the effect of interaction between human operators, machines and the environment in so far as they affect problems of road safety, automobile design, aircraft design and so on.

Choice of optional projects on problem investigation in these and similar fields are avail- able at Final Year and the design work throughout the course lays some stress on human factors. At the post-graduate level, graduates from all engineering departments can tackle problems involving not only engineering principles but also aspects of psychology, physiology and statistical analysis.

Career Opportunities

Intending students should obtain from the .University Appointments Board (in the University Grounds) the careers booklet on Mechanical Engineering which sets out quite fully the various avenues of research, commercial, industrial and governmental employ- ment available following graduation.

Professional Status

The bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering gives full exemption from the corporate membership examination of the Institution of Engineers, Australia. It also gives exemption from Parts I and II of the examination of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London, which is equivalent to the recognition afforded universities such as London, Cambridge, Birmingham, etc.
