The course is an introduction course for students who do not hold a bachelor's degree in Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering.
The course consists of four modules: Statics and Strenght of Materials, Machine Elements, 3D Modeling and Finite Element Modeling.
Statics & Strength of Materials:
Theory of statically determinated beams, frames, trusses and composite structures. Moment, shear, torsion and axial loaded. Equilibrium, graphical and analytical methods. Stress analysis for linear elastic material. Knowledge of statically indeterminate structures and deflection.
Design. Materials. Fracture Hypotheses. Analysis of stress. Calculation of safety. Transmission. Shafts. Critical speed and balancing. Calculation of deflection. Force Transfer, bearing and gear.
Introducing the use of modern CAD tools and the manufacture of technical drawings. 3D modeling by using the CAD program Solid Works with additional tools. There is a particular emphasis on the application of Solid Works as a design tools including design changes, etc. Standards for technical drawing.
Introduction to the element method, matrix statics, linear static analysis of application of the rod element, beam elements, plate / shell element and volume element. Application of software.
