ME-302 / 4 credits

Teacher: 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.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Use experimental and numerical analysis tools with ease and fluency, CP2
  • Model the defined problem based on the geometric, kinematic / dynamic, material assumptions while choosing suitable numerical and analytical tools followed by the experimental validation, CP6
  • List the functions of an existing or new product based on the specifications, CP4
  • Choose the main design solution based on the required functional components and other quantifiable design parameters (i.e. mechanical performance, manufacturing costs, development time, available technology), CP5
  • Identify the main- and sub-functions of a mechanical system and corresponding main- and sub-systems in a complete mechanical system / machine to classify the required constitutive elements, CP11
  • Design a system based on engineering specifications utilizing suitable numerical and analytical tools for optimizing the design parameters, CP10
