Namas Chandra Introduction to Mechanical engineering Chapter 4-3 EML 3004C 4.1 Concept of Design Design is the development of a product or device to meet a specific need Design may not necessarily be a physical product Development of Microsoft word software is considered a software design of a word processing program. In mechanical engineering world, by device we typically mean a product. It may range from an automobile, engine or even a spark plug.

Namas Chandra Introduction to Mechanical engineering Chapter 4-4 EML 3004C 4.2 Difference Between Design and Analysis Analysis is different from design or reproduction Analysis is the application of engineering science and mathematics to a well-defined, well-posed process with a unique solution. Design is a solution to a problem with ill-posed constraints. There are many possible solutions all valid to the problem. Analysis ……. . If a 6' man reaches the top of the building at 32° standing 40' away from base, what is the height of the building? Design ……. . Given a building, device a method to measure the height of the building. .
Namas Chandra Introduction to Mechanical engineering Chapter 4-5 EML 3004C Design example of a Catapult Rewind back to middle ages! We need to design a device to haul objects from a distance accurately on to a target. Suppose we need to determine the trajectory given all geometric variables, we can use basic dynamic equation: 2 2 2 2 0 0 2 2 / 0 cos sin x y x y o x y F ma a F m dv d x dt dt dv d y g dt dt dx v V dt dy v V dt V v v θ = = = = = = - = = = = = + Given specific x, angle and distance we have a unique velocity to get to the target- Analysis But there are many possible ways to choose combination of these variables- Design .

Namas Chandra Introduction to Mechanical engineering Chapter 4-7 EML 3004C 4.3 Good vs. Bad Design In general a design that just barely meets the expectation is a bad design. If the design fails to meet the requirement it is no design. If a design exceeds expectation in terms of cost, performance, maintenance, rugged, eventual disposal and safety then it is a good design.
