Design of machine elements: bearings, shafts, welds, fasteners, gears etc. Techniques for improving mechatronic designs based on economic and functional consideration. Geometric tolerancing. The use of solid modelling in the simulation of kinematic behaviour of mechatronic devices and in the production of engineering drawings. Integration of studies in the group-design of a mechatronic device.
This unit provides a focus in level 2 of the mechatronics program where studies from the first semester are integrated into whole mechatronic design tasks involving a combination of individual and group work. Additional mechanical elements are included in this unit so that moderately complex mechatronic devices can be designed and evaluated theoretically by using conventional mathematical techniques, and geometrically and kinematically by constructing virtual devices in solid modeling software.
