Machine Elements – ME 338 – Syllabus – Spring 2010 Unique number: 18070 Lecture MWF 10:00 – 11:00 am, ETC 2.136 Instructor Dr. Don Berry Office: ETC 4.142 Phone: 471-7101 email: [email protected] Office Hours MWF 1:30pm – 2:30pm or by appointment Teaching Assistant Pradeep Radhakrishnan ETC 4.134 email: [email protected] Office Hours: M: 1:00pm – 4:00pm Text required Norton, Robert L., Machine Design : An Integrated Approach , 3 rd ed., Prentice Hall, 2005. Course Summary The goal of this course is to develop a basic understanding of machine design, including systems, machine elements, and components. You will learn the basic mechanics necessary to model and analyze subsystems of machines. Through hands-on activities, you will also be exposed to the actual arrangement and assembly of machine elements in real-world systems and consumer products. Prerequisites: ME 311 and EM 319 Course Objectives To apply knowledge of solid mechanics to the design of real mechanical devices. To recognize failure and fatigue as constraints on component design. To understand the details of bearings, shafts, gears springs, clutches, and brakes that distinguish their use in various applications. To unravel the mysteries behind how linkages can be designed to produces complex motions. To bridge the gap between ME analysis and ME design by investigating and tinkering with real mechanical devices. Knowledge, skills, and abilities students should have before entering this course Able to construct Free Body Diagrams Solve static & dynamic equilibrium Create shear & moment diagrams Understand the interplay between stress and strain Know how to identify and apply normal and shear stress equations for various geometries Impact on subsequent courses in curriculum This class is an important step towards the design efforts you will engage in senior year (e.g. ME366J, and ME466K).
