2.72 Elements of Mechanical Design


Class Info

Advanced study of modeling, design, integration, and best practices for use of machine elements, such as bearings, bolts, belts, flexures, and gears. Modeling and analysis is based upon rigorous application of physics, mathematics, and core mechanical engineering principles, which are reinforced via laboratory experiences and a design project in which students model, design, fabricate, and characterize a mechanical system that is relevant to a real-world application. Activities and quizzes are directly related to, and coordinated with, the project deliverables. Develops the ability to synthesize, model and fabricate a design subject to engineering constraints (e.g., cost, time, schedule). Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments. Enrollment limited.

This class has 2.005, 2.051, and 2.008 as prerequisites. This class has 2.671 as a corequisite.

2.72 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. L. Culpepper.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 3-442.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
