Official Description

Kinematics and dynamics of machinery, including introduction to user-centered design and design thinking, analytical and computer-aided design of kinematics, dynamic force analysis, principle of virtual work, cam and gear design, and balancing. Project-based learning of multi-mechanism system design, analysis, fabrication, and evaluation. Course Information: Prerequisite: ME 270, TAM 212, and TAM 251.

Detailed Course Description

Kinematics and dynamics of machinery, including analytical kinematics, force analysis, cam design and balancing. Application of elementary mechanics of solids to analyze and size machine components for stress and deflection. Introduction to finite element analysis with emphasis on beam and plate models. Prerequisite: ME 170, TAM 212, and TAM 251. 3 undergraduate hours.

TOPICS:

1. Planar Kinematics (Kinematic fundamentals; Graphical linkage synthesis; Position, velocity and acceleration analysis; and Cam design)

2. Machine Dynamics (Linkage dynamics: motion input; Virtual work approach; Flywheels; Balancing; Engine dynamics; and Impact dynamics)

3. Structural Design (Review of basic mechanics: stress, strain, elastic modulus, yield stress; Review of beam theory: shear force, bending, moment, strain |amp; curvature, moment of inertia, solutions for deflection; Matrix/finite element method for assemblies of springs and frame structures; Choice of cross-sections, buckling loads, joints; and Introduction to plate elements and shell structures, continuum elements and general elasticity theory)

ME: Required.

EM: Possible secondary field, with approval.
