Mechanical design principles

ME-302

Lecturer(s) :

Paik Jamie

Language:

English

Summary

We will study the working principles and physics of essential mechanical components for diverse applications in engineering mechanics. The course will serve as a vehicle to introduce and synthesize new mechanisms to strengthen the often-intuitive design processes.

Content

1. Introduction.  Course outline. Standards, Engineering codes, Probability, Reliability, Design factor, Eco-pod project description

2. Structural analysis, Simple truss, Project requirements + Biblio/ citation rules  

3. Exercises / Project definitions and task management

4. Simple joints: Zero force members method of sections space trusess, linkages

5. Friction elements I: Internal forces In rigid bar, cables, angle of friction, wedges

6. Fixed joints: Bolts and threads (« self-locking » or not?), Joint fixations (bolted and welded)

7. Power transmission: Flat power belts /cable tension

8. Brakes: Gears, Bearings, Collar bearing, Disk brakes

9. Compliant mechanisms, Springs

10. Moving joints I: Virtual work, kinetics of bars

11. Moving joints II: Planar kinematics of a rigid body

12. Relative motions, last report check w/ RG

13. Course overview I, presentation 15 min (group 1-8)

14. Course overview II, presentation 15 min  (group 9-16)
