ME2525 - Machine Element Design
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
An introduction to the design process. Exercise in design and construction. Functional
and spatial design using layout and assembly drawings. Size tolerancing. Structural
design; design to resist excessive deflection, yielding failure and fatigue failure.
Machine design using standard machine elements and components. Introduction to the
analysis and design of mechanical components such as shafts, bearings, keys, splines,
gears, brakes, clutches, springs, bolted and welded joints.
- be able to analyse and design common machine elements;
- be able to communicate machine element designs through the use of assembly, working
and detail drawings;
- become more conversant with the design process;
- become more familiar with the range and function of common machine elements. Students
should be able to apply this knowledge to generating new, innovative designs.
