Course: ME 630. Computer-Aided Design of Machinery (3)
Prerequisites: ME 330, ME 415. Presentation and discussion on design of complex machinery based on closed- or open-chain mechanisms. System approach to the design and analysis of practical systems, with emphasis on the use of computer-aided engineering. Iterative design processes are exercised through completing design projects with steps of component selection and design optimization included. Pro-Engineer and Pro-Mechanica software programs are used to facilitate design processes.
