MECH 7143 - Fundamentals of Machine Elements
MECH 2603 with D or better
This course is designed to provide a general knowledge of the various components and elements of devices utilized in a manufacturing process system design. The emphasis is on use, selection and specification of the components, not on the aspects of individual mechanical design principles best left to the mechanical engineers and designers. The students will be able to select and specify individual "machine elements" or incorporate them into a system. The selection criteria will involve comparisons of the various available elements utilizing charts, tables and/or manufacturers data generally available in traditional reference texts, standards manuals or literature.
