MKAJ1073 ENGINEERING ROCK MECHANICS

  • ID: 5979

Lecturers :
ASSOC. PROF. MOHD FOR BIN MOHD AMIN
DR. RINI ASNIDA BINTI ABDULLAH

Synopsis :

This course deals with rocks, particularly on how these geological materials react to both geological and construction induced stresses. Construction of structures in or on rock mass (e.g. foundation, slope, tunnel & cavern) depends greatly on the rock mass properties and the interaction between the rock mass and the engineered structures. The term ‘rock mechanics’ refers to the basic science of mechanics applied to rocks, while the term ‘rock engineering’ refers to any engineering activities involving rocks. Basic knowledge in geology (particularly rock types, discontinuities in rock and structural geology) is essential for this course.

  • ID: 1221

Lecturer : MR. AMAT SAIRIN B. DEMUN

Synopsis :

This course is designed to introduce and apply the concepts of Fluid Mechanics (fluid statics and kinematics, flow in closed conduits, with/and centrifugal pumps) and to solve problems related to Civil Engineering. It encompasses topics such as fluid statics and fluid dynamics. The pressures and forces in these static and dynamic fluids are introduced, discussed and analysed through equations. It also touches upon the analyses of flows in closed conduits to include minor and major head losses. The performance characteristics, functions and applications of centrifugal pumps in pipeline systems are also demonstrated and analysed in this course. At the end of this course, students will be able to identify, analyse and solve problems related to Fluid Mechanics.

SKAA1213-01 ENGINEERING MECHANICS (MEKANIK KEJURUTERAAN)

  • ID: 966

Lecturers :
DR. TAN CHER SIANG
MR. ROSLI BIN ANANG
DR. MOHD YUNUS BIN ISHAK

Synopsis :

The course is designed to expose the students to the basic principles of statics and dynamics. The subject is divided into two parts : Mechanics of Statics and Mechanics of Dynamics. The content of the lecture will be emphasized on the application of the basic mechanics principle in civil engineering.

Mechanics of Statics deals with equilibrium of bodies, i.e. bodies at rest and bodies moving with a constant velocity. It includes resultant and resolution of forces, equilibrium of a particle, force system resultant, equilibrium of rigid bodies, center of gravity and centroid, and moment of inertia of an area.

Mechanics of Dynamics deals with the accelerated motion of bodies. It includes kinematics and kinetics of a particle and of a rigid body. Kinematics discusses the relationship between displacement, velocity and acceleration against time. Kinetics covers the concepts of force and acceleration (Newton’s second law of motion), energy and work, impulse and momentum, and vibration.

At the end the course, students should be able to incorporate and utilise principles of applied mechanics in civil and structural engineering problems.

SKAA2712 ENGINEERING GEOLOGY AND ROCK MECHANICS

  • ID: 863

Lecturer : ASSOC. PROF. DR. EDY TONNIZAM BIN MOHAMAD

Synopsis :

This course is designed to enable students to evaluate, to apply and to analyse the relevant geological and rock mechanics principles in designing safe and economical rock engineering structures. In geology, the related topics on rock types/classifications, geological structures and geological processes are taught. Having acquired this knowledge, the principles of rock mechanics are then introduced mainly to highlight the relevancy of engineering properties of geological materials in designing rock engineering projects. These principles include engineering properties of rock material, rock discontinuities and rock stabilisation systems. At the end of the course, students should acquire the related knowledge and principles in geology and rock mechanics, and should be able to apply these knowledge and principles in designing safe and economic engineering structures in rock masses.
