Wing A - 405 Textbook Shigley’s Mechanical Design, by R.G. Budynas, and J. Keith Nisbett 8 th edition, McGraw Hill, 2008. Prerequisite MECH 320: Mechanics of Materials MECH 340: Engineering Materials Description A course that focuses on the mechanical design and selection of machine components such as screws, welds, joints; design of shafts and axles, selection of bearings; lubrication, design of friction elements for both static and fatigue conditions. Applications are covered through a number of case studies in addition to a team project. Goals MECH 420 is designed to prepare students to determine the structural integrity of common machine components such as bolted joints, springs, gears and shafts, and to apply this knowledge within the context of a design problem. Material and Objectives Topics covered in this course include: 1. Static failure theories (Chapter 5) 2. Fatigue failure theories (Chapter 6) 3. Shafts and shaft components (Chapter 7) 4. Screws, fasteners, and design of nonpermanent joints (Chapter 8)
