Course Detail

MA3001 Machine Element Design
This course aims to introduce how many of the most common machine elements such as belts, chains, gears and bearings operate; and how the information learned in previous mechanics of materials and theory of mechanism courses can be applied to solve the design problems encountered when using these elements. You will learn the important features of these elements and the methods of analyzing and designing them. You will also learn how machine elements are selected and integrated into common and commercially available mechanical devices and systems, so that these devices and system can satisfy their function and desired application. The use of industrial manuals will be part of the learning experience of this course.
1) Analyze and perform appropriate calculations required for the selection of standard machine components
2) Design and select machine elements to satisfy the function of the machine for desired applications
3) Integrate and interface machine elements in a mechanical device or system
Who Should Attend
