ENGR 320 - Machine Design & Synthesis

Focus is on advanced mechanics topics, failure theories (static and dynamic), and on an understanding of basic machine components. This course will develop the student's creative skills in conceptualizing machines to meet performance criteria by means of a design project. Machine designs will require the understanding and use of machine components such as springs, screws, bearings, basic 4-bar linkages, cams, and gears. Finally, a number of mini labs/workshops on topics that support the design project such as dynamic analysis software, machine component design, and design for manufacture are given. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in ENGR 220 and ENGR 221 and satisfactory completion of ENGR 155 (or concurrent registration)
