Assignment set by; David Tucker

Semester 1

2014
Title:
Automotive Systems Principles
You are required to produce a report
(2400 words)
which evidences your experience associated with the
module learning outcomes identified above. This should be specific to the following areas:
(i)
Demonstr
ation of
knowledge regarding
experimental techniques
(ii)
Ability to collect / generate and interpret data
(iii)
A comprehensive understanding of typical test equipment
(iv)
A comprehensive analysis of
aerodynamic
loads and their
effects
on chassis loading
(v)
Use analytical
techniques
to solve engineering problems,
You should evidence
these outcomes by answering ALL the following questions posed.
You should aim
to be reflective in describing the work
carried out
, to the extent that you make some judgments of your
breadth an
d depth of understanding in these areas
, and expand to areas such as ‘future developments’
as informed by your literature review.
