Open: Mechanical Design and Engineering Process

Mechanical Engineering design is a study of design-making processes. It utilizes mathematics, the material sciences and the engineering-mechanics sciences. In this course concentration will be on machine elements design rather than machine design. This book will cover the following topics:

Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Design, Part I

  • The Nature of Mechanical Engineering Design
  • Design phases
  • Design Procedure
  • Design Considerations
  • Standards and Codes
  • Materials Selection
  • Dimensions, Tolerances, Limits and Fits
  • Surface finish
  • Relation between manufacturing processes, tolerances and surface finish

Stress Analysis, Part II

  • Simple Stresses
  • Types of Loading
  • Combined stresses
  • Failure theories

Design of Mechanical Elements

  • Shafts, axles and their components
  • Bearings
  • Couplings
  • Screws
  • Welding and Riveted joints
  • Mechanical Springs
  • Clutches
  • Brakes
  • Belt
  • Chain
  • Gears
