MET 226 - Machine Design Theory II
This is the second of a two-course sequence in Machine Design Theory. It is an advanced course in which mathematical analysis, industry best practices, and system interpretation are used for the effective design of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams and mechanisms. Computer based tools are applied to create flexible design and analytical tools. Three class hours.
Prerequisite: MET 225 with a grade of C or better.
Course Learning Outcomes
1. Create fully functional machine element design based upon stringent mathematical analysis and applied physics.
2. Evaluate alternative machine components as part of a higher level functional assembly.
3. Perform the mathematical analysis necessary for optimal machine element performance.
4. Describe the industry supporting machine production, part manufacture, industry standards and applicable code compliance.
5. Describe the process of machine element design, selection and procurement.
