Course Description

The aims of this course are to provide the concepts, procedures, data and decision analysis necessary to design machine elements commonly used mechanical devices and systems, with particular emphasis on selection of materials, design of mechanical drives systems, and various assembly techniques of importance to mechatronic engineering systems

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course, the students will be able
1 to analyze the stresses and strains in load carrying members due to direct axial tensile and compressive forces.
2 to determine the torsional shear stress and deformation.
3 to compute the stresses due to bending in beams.
4 to calculate the deflection of beams due to a variety of loading and support conditions
5 to analyze stresses in beams under combined axial and flexure loads, eccentric loads and unsymmetrical bending.
6 to analyze stresses in two dimensions and understand the concepts of principal stresses and the use of Mohr circles to solve dimensional stress problems.
7 to understand the difference between statically determinate and indeterminate problems.
