Intended learning outcomes

The main goal of the course is to provide fundamental knowledge about development and production of desirable products.After the course the student shall be able to:

  • analyse and simulate technical systems,
  • identify and explain a selection of technical principles that realize a function,
  • dimension standard components,
  • compare and judge different solutions of engineering problems.

Course main content

The course is problem oriented and is based upon analysis and dimensioning of standard components in technical products. Topics treated are:

  • tools for calculation and dimensioning of components
  • fasteners and power screws
  • shafting and associated parts
  • rolling element bearings
  • journal bearings
  • clutches and breaks
  • transmissions

In parallel with the dimensioning part of the course there is some hand in tasks and laborations which aims at training problem solving with respect to dimensioning and selection of technical solutions. The course intends to portray design and product realisation in a comprehensive view showing consideration for what makes a product desirable.
