Study of Dynamic Systems in JCB Construction Machinery
This resource, from Mathematics for Engineering Exemplars, shows the application of mathematics within the mechanical and civil engineering industry. Here students learn how calculations for displacement, velocity and acceleration, caused during loading, are used to ensure that they are not so large as to adversely affect the performance of a dump truck. Detailed notes and examples are provided and there are extension activities for students to complete, together with learning outcomes and assessment criteria. The resource is supported by JCB Excavators Limited.
