MAE 322   na, npdf

Mechanical Design

Daniel M. Nosenchuck

This course builds on the technical foundations established in MAE 321, and extends the scope to include a range of advanced mechanism design. Students, working in teams, will be challenged to design and fabricate a robotic system that will draw upon multidisciplinary engineering elements. The robot will be used to facilitate common daily tasks. The selected tasks vary each year. CAD, CAE, and CAM will be utilized in the design/simulation/prototype process. Labs are designed to reinforce and expand CAD and CAE skills. A final public competition will be held among the design teams. Judges from relevant industries will be present.

Sample reading list:
Shigley and Mische, Mechanical Engineering Design
