INME 4011 Term Project Guideline Each team consists of four students (maximum). The projects are described in the attached document. First part of the project includes the calculation of the shaft diameter using static concepts with stress concentration and static failure theories. The second part of the project includes the calculation of the shaft diameters using dynamic concepts with dynamic stress concentration. A minimum of three diameters must be calculated in your shaft. Each group must select a project from the sample projects given. Each group has to deliver a different design. Each group must select its project by September 28th, 2010. Only four groups per project are available in the first come first serve basis. Important Deadlines: 1. The next class after the first partial exam. A preliminary design must be presented and a report (max 8 pages) must be handled-in. All calculations and formulas must be explicitly detailed. Calculations must be performed using Excel or any other software. 2. The next class after the second partial exam. A final project report is due (16 pages maximum). Calculations must be performed using Excel or any other software. Design Resources: The document "Practical Guidelines for Mechanical Design and Manufacture", which can be found below provides some useful general information. http://www-mdp.eng.cam.ac.uk/resources/enginfo/mechanical/practical_guidelines.pdf www.freestudy.co.uk , a free web site for Engineers aspiring to take the examinations of the Engineering Council, provides a range of self-study materials on Solid Mechanics including statics and dynamics. Introduction to the Design Process http://www-mdp.eng.cam.ac.uk/nagty/resources/enginfo/design/design_process.pdf Cookbook of common mechanical designs http://www-mdp.eng.cam.ac.uk/nagty/resources/enginfo/cookbook/cookbook.html An online course in mechanisms is provided by technologystudent.com and gives a good overview of some of the kinds of mechanisms you may wish to think about using. http://www.technologystudent.com/
