M E 367 Machine Design (3)
This course introduces students to the process for selection, design and failure analysis of various common machine elements. This course will give students the foundation to design mechanical systems and the tools to design, select, or analyze machine components for practical applications necessary for their senior design projects and other mechanical engineering electives. Subjects include the reliability, safety factors, and the design of machine elements including shafts, roller bearings, brakes, clutches, gears, belt and chain drives, and additional topics such as screws, springs, journal bearings, and connections. Both static and cyclic loading are considered as part of the design and analysis process. Extensive use is made of material properties, design tables, figures and graphs to assist in the design and analysis process. The course includes a comprehensive project that incorporates several of the topics covered in the course in the design of a mechanical system. The goal of the project is for students to learn how various machine components and procedures are used in the Machine Design process as well as giving them further experience in teamwork and presentation skills.
