The aim of this course is to enable graduate engineers, concerned with armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs), to understand and appreciate the principles behind different engine technologies & power transmission components that may be encountered in those vehicles. The course will also review the terramechanics associated with the off-road mobility of the AFVs. The course is intended for both civilian and military staffs with responsibilities for ground platforms (both wheeled and tracked fighting vehicles).

Learning objectives

– Categorise and appraise the elements and systems that form the vehicle powertrain and chassis, giving typical examples for military vehicles

– Analyse the fundamentals of engine and transmission design principles and relate them to the preference of diesel engines in military applications

– Analyse the interaction between the vehicle and different ground types and interpret the results in relation to its mobility and performance

– Evaluate the requirements for a military vehicle in relation to its means of propulsion systems and produce a clear and concise report on the outcome
