Course Description:
Course description The aim of the subject is to provide the skills and knowledge necessary for the design and verification of mechanical elements, using both traditional and numerical methods and to produce 2D and 3D CAD models and drawings of components and mechanical systems with particular reference to the problems of dimensional and geometric tolerances. The topics covered are: - integration of structural mechanics (residual stress, variable amplitude fatigue and basic multi-axial fatigue; - principles and procedures for design and verification of some of the major elements of machines and joints (axes and shafts, axial symmetric solids, hub-shaft connections, bearings, springs, threaded fasteners and bolts, welded joints); - principles and rules of dimensional and geometric tolerancing, criteria for their control and methods for stack-up analysis; - methods for functional representation and simulation of industrial projects Expected Learning Outcomes Knowledge and understanding of mechanical design principles and specific design methodologies for some elements of machines and mechanical joints on the basis of the principal standards; Knowledge of methods of functional representation and simulation of industrial projects; Knowledge of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD & T) and of the stack-up problems; Ability to perform the design and verification of mechanical elements and connections (axes and shafts, axisymmetric solids, hub-shaft connections, bearings, springs, threaded fasteners and bolts, welded joints); Ability to produce manual sketch drawing 2D, computer assisted 3D model and drawing with functional dimensioning by using dimensional and geometric tolerancing in stack-ups.
