Aims/Description: You will undertake three experiments and compare results with analytical solutions obtained using appropriate theories and software. The experiments will be performed on different established areas of mechanical engineering such as: thermofluids, solids and dynamics. The experiments are similar to those carried out by practising engineers and therefore provide experience of the challenges in acquiring meaningful results and the issues involved in producing a useful theoretical model. You will be required to produce three full laboratory reports.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to Level 7 students registered on associated programmes.
