AbstractStudents develop and build a product from A-Z! They work in teams and independently, learn to structure problems, to identify solutions, system analysis and simulations, as well as presentation and documentation techniques. They build the product with access to a machine shop and state of the art engineering tools (Matlab, Simulink, etc).
ObjectiveThe various objectives of the Focus Project are:
- Synthesizing and deepening the theoretical knowledge from the basic courses of the 1. - 4. semester
- Team organization, work in teams, increase of interpersonal skills
- Independence, initiative, independent learning of new topic contents
- Problem structuring, solution identification in indistinct problem definitions, searches of information
- System description and simulation
- Presentation methods, writing of a document
- Ability to make decisions, implementation skills
- Workshop and industrial contacts
- Learning and recess of special knowledge
- Control of most modern engineering tools (Matlab, Simulink, CAD, CAE, PDM)

AbstractIntroduction to dimensioning (strength calculation) for static and dynamic loaded components and machine parts. Critical strength and fracture criteria. Analytical methods for the calculation of stresses and strains. Consideration of stress concentrations by notch effects. Strength proof for different machine elements.
ObjectiveThe lecture uses basic strength theory from Mechanics II to size and design typical machine elements as beam structures, axes and shafts, pressure vessels, weldings and screws. The students learn to define both geometry and material of frequently used machine elements. Strength calculations are performed both for static and fatigue operating conditions.
Content- Theoretical basics of engineering design
- Description of ductil and brittle material behavior
- Design of machine elements at static loading conditions
- Notch effects
- Axes and shafts
- Fatigue design
- Surface pressure
- Rotationally symmetric bodies, pressure vessels and cylindrical interference
- Dimensioning of permanent and separable joints
Lecture notesThe lecture bases on the books specified under "LITERATUR". The books 1) to 5) can be downloaded as pdf's.
