ENEM14013 Process Engineering and Plants

Course details

This course provides students with opportunities to develop and demonstrate their professional capabilities in the design of mechanical equipment associated with processing plant within the context of the minerals processing and associated heavy industries. Students apply engineering theories, practices, standards and tools to design of equipment and apply their knowledge of strength of materials, tolerances and modes of failure to design. The emphasis is on the design of machine elements as components of larger systems requiring analysis to be reduced to subsystems, assemblies and components, and how the performance of the whole system is affected by the performance of its constituent parts. The design process equipment and drivelines, and describe specific design issues that apply to common process and general engineering components and equipment. Students evaluate and explain their design decisions, selections and design features. Students will be required to apply their existing knowledge of statics, dynamics, vibrations, strength of materials, thermofluids to design tasks, comply with relevant codes of practice and use numerical methods and computer aided design tools where appropriate. They are required to show they can work productively and professionally, both individually and in project teams, to solve problems, and document and communicate their work clearly in a professional manner.
Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a residential school to promote development of course learning outcomes.
