    Module Title MOTORCYCLE CHASSIS DESIGN AND DYNAMICS Module Code 6MV501 Pre-requisite (where appropriate)  Motorcycle Chassis Engineering or Equivalent Date of Approval March 2012 Module Level 6 Credit value 20 Total Number of Learning Hours 200 Key Words (10 words maximum)  Chassis Performance, Dynamics and Analysis, Tyre Modelling, Innovation Aspects. Module Delivery Online/Distance   Blended/Face to face   Work-based learning  Mode (Please tick as appropriate) √  Module Description (200 words max) The modern motorcycle is a complex piece of equipment, capable of extremely high performance in a number of areas, not just in terms of top speed. The modern motorcycle engineer must be able to understand the forces and stresses generated by the extremes of rider expectation and input, coupled with the power and torque outputs developed. Module Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the module, students will be able to: 1. Critically review, consolidate and extend the application and analysis of motorcycle dynamics concepts. 2. Design and critically evaluate chassis concepts and use analytical methods in the investigation of the installation of drive-train components and the stresses generated. 3. Design and critically analyse the operation of motorcycle suspension systems and predict ride behaviour and handling performance. 4. Critically review and analyse the innovative approach to motorcycle chassis and suspension design at the cutting edge of chassis technology and systems Module Content Vehicle Ride Kinematics and dynamic analysis of suspension systems; suspension modelling, measurement of suspension forces;    gyroscopic effects, procession, interaction with engine rotational forces. Vehicle Handling Analytical models for cornering and braking at a range of speeds and on a variety of surfaces, counter-steering effects, acceleration and braking, braking stability; steering systems; effects of geometrical changes, effects of weight transfer and cornering forces Stress Analysis  Torsional chassis stress, suspension stresses under cornering, braking and acceleration conditions; Chassis flex and lateral stiffness considerations Tyre modelling Tyre properties and behaviour; tyre forces and moments, contact velocity and displacement; tyre models, discussion of coefficients of friction; on and off-road design principles. Innovation aspects Modern technologies, manufacturing and machining techniques, composite / extruded / cast / tubular chassis systems. Joining methods and structural considerations. Module Learning and Teaching Methods Learning & Teaching Methods (as defined in the QAA indicative list – See Guidance Notes) : The module will be delivered through lectures, group tutorials and supervised demonstrations. Lectures 24 hours Tutorials 12 hours Demonstration 12 hours Guided independent study 152 hours Total 200 hours Activity Type Percentage Category Scheduled learning and teaching activities 24% 1 Guided independent study 76% 2 Placement/study abroad 0% 3 Total 100% Module Assessment Method Formative Assessment (0%): This is designed to give students some indication of their progress and levels of understanding and will be used throughout the module. It will be achieved by setting students time constrained tutorial tasks followed by individual feedback      Summative Assessment (100%): CW: 70% : Learning outcomes 1, 2 and 4 to be assessed An assignment of nominal length 3000 words which covers aspects of chassis design and innovation, power-train installation considerations and chassis dynamics. EX: 30%: Learning outcome 3 to be assessed A time constrained 3 hour exam covering aspects of suspension design, analysis and behaviour Reading list Link to ASPIRE ã  Cocco, G.
