ENGR 331

Machine Design

Prerequisite: ENGR 205. Students learn to design and select mechanical components and to predict component performance. Topics include shear and bending stresses in beams, beam deflections, column buckling, planar combined loading, static failure, fatigue failure, and surface failure. Specific component types, such as fasteners, springs, bearings, gears, brakes, and shafts are covered. Finite-element tools are utilized for linear elastic stress analysis. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory.
