ME 355 Mechanical Engineering Design

Students learn methods to design, analyze, and select mechanical components, systems, and structural elements (power transmission systems, pressure vessels, intermediate and eccentric columns, fasteners, and bearings). Static, cyclic, and transient/impact loadings are considered. Students apply closed-form, empirical, and finite element methods of life, load, stress, and deflection analysis to the determination of component behavior and geometry, and material selection. Students are introduced to factor-of-safety, static failure, and fatigue analysis theories as design methodologies.
