MF2006 Innovative Design II 6.0 credits
Innovativ konstruktion II
This course aims to give the students a better ability to perform reasoning and considerations in a more engineering like manner when detailing of simple products. This course builds on earlier acquired knowledge within e.g. mechanics, solid mechanics, electrical engineering and product development. One important part of the course is to use standard components and to select material to the parts that bring these together as well as to consider manufacturing issues e.g. when creating drawings and other manufacturing documents. In addition the course deals with how to reason in order to estimate loads for dimensioning of structure elements as well as machine elements. An introduction is also given to topics that deal with innovations such as patens and other propriety rights.

After completing this course you will be able to:
- Design and detail simple mechanical products based on engineering reasoning and considerations
- Apply earlier acquired knowledge within e.g. mechanics, solid mechanics, electrical engineering and product development.
- Develop and estimate loads as a basis for dimensioning of structure elements as well as selection of machine elements
- Dimensioning of simple machine elements such as flanged bearings; shrink fits belt- and chain transmissions
- Apply basic criteria for designing products considering e.g. load lines, load distribution, adaptation for manufacturing.
- Select material and components from sub supplier’s catalogs for design of simple products.
- Produce detailed drawings including manufacturing tolerances for simpler system products.
- Describe what characterizes an innovation
- Explain what demands that need to fulfilled to obtain a patent
Course main content
This course deals with an applied subject where earlier acquired knowledge is applied and integrated with new theory being presented. The curriculum can be divided into four main parts:
- Innovations, entrepreneurship, patent
- Design structures
- Load carrying structures, applying loads
- Load lines, stress concentrations
- Material selection
- Manufacturing adaptation
- Documentation and communication
- Technical drawings
- Dimensioning, tolerances
- Systems design
- Prime movers
The theoretical content is presented at the lectures and is applied in an assignment.
