MF1011 Design and Product Realization, Introduction 9.0 credits

Design och produktframtagning, perspektivkurs

The course Components Design aims at improving the understanding for how components in mechanical products are designed. A number of components are analyzed in the course with regard to function, reliability, forces, stresses, causes of failure etc. The components are partly analyzed by means of known design tools such as Finite Elements and Monte Carlo simulation, but the students are also practiced in making and evaluating models and algorithms of their own.
