Elements of Machine Design (3) The objective of this course is to integrate the cornerstone elements in machine design to offer a perspective view. It starts with advanced analyses on fracture and fatigue failure mechanisms and their incorporation in practical design. Contact mechanics and failure are also discussed. The effects of environment, such as temperature, corrosion are considered. Concepts of reliability engineering are discussed to formulate these theories. The course then discusses engineering materials and their selection based on the broader classes of application such as automotive, aerospace, marine. Emerging concepts of applications, materials and manufacturing will be described to grasp the future trends in machine design.
