MF1064 Modelling and Simulation in Design and Product Realization 9.0 credits

Modellering och simulering i design och produktframtagning

This course is one of the program specific courses for CDEPR. In the course earlier knowledge fom the DoP-courses in product development is integrated with application of mathematics, mechanics, numerical methods and vibration control. The course is based on a product development project with elements of modeling and simulation.

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

In the course, mechanisms will be designed and analysed, where the force and geometry analyses result in equation systems with at least ten unknown variables, so the equation systems (both linear and non-linear) are easiest to solve numerically in Matlab. The force analyses result in loads on the product which can be used for following dimensioning with strength calculations. The force analyses also result in loads on machine components for subsequent design of these components.

CAD will be used as a design and analysis tool, e.g. for motion and FEM analyses.

The work is documented in technical reports that include force and geometry analyses, strength calculations and choice of components.

Intended learning outcomes *

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

1. Carry out analyses of link mechanisms to achieve a desired movement

2. Carry out kinematic analyses of link mechanisms

3. Carry out force analyses for link mechanisms

4. Choose and dimension machine components such that they jointly result in a desired systems behaviour

5. Suggest design solutions for assembling machine components

6. Verify mathematical models and estimate fairness of the results of calculations and simulations

7. Document mathematical models and results from calculations and simulations in a technical report
