MECH-345 - Machine Design

3 credits
This course studies the design, manufacturing, and cost of mechanical elements which, when combined as a machine, perform a specific function. A review of strength of materials is covered, followed by the study of topics such as endurance and fatigue analyses (including the effect of lubrication on mechanical components). The design calculations for shafts, springs, belts, clutches and chains are included. Selection criteria for bolted and welded connections, ball and roller bearings, and spur, bevel, and worm gears are included. Special emphasis is given to the selection of engineering materials including cost, machinability and wear.
