CONTENT

This course introduces fundamentals of mechanical systems analysis and design. Specific topics include: preliminary design and analysis of mechanical systems; machine elements and their functions; force and life analysis of mechanical systems;basic design of mechanical systems for stability stress and deflections. and deflections.

OBJECTIVE

Objective of the course is to introduce students with mechanics of materials, fundamentals of strength of materials, strain and stress analysis, component design principles, design for static failure, design for dynamic failure and implementation of basic optimization methods in design problems.

LEARNING OUTCOME
