ME57000 - Machine Design

Fall 2015

Days/Time: TBA / TBA
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
Investigate and study advanced problems in machine element design based on stress and strength.

Description:
Stress analysis, index notation, static and dynamic failure theories, two dimensional problems in elasticity, contact stress, fracture, introduction to finite difference and element methods, bending of non-symmetrical sections, curved beam theory, torsion of prismatic section, and energy methods.

Topics Covered:
Stress analysis, index notation, static and dynamic failure theories, two dimensional problems in elasticity, contact stress, fracture, introduction to finite difference and element methods, bending of non-symmetrical sections, curved beam theory, torsion of prismatic section, and energy methods.

Prerequisites:
Undergraduate courses in machine design and mechanics of materials or consent of instructor. Some basic knowledge of computer programming and finite element software.

Applied/Theory: 50/50

Web Address:
http://meweb.ecn.purdue.edu/~me570/

Web Content:
Course website under modification. Will contain: schedule, syllabus, lecture notes, homework sets, project info., grades.

Homework:
Weekly assignments. A separate email address for the course will be generated and announced during the first class. However, the following is the instructor's email address: sadeghi@ecn.purdue.edu

Projects:
A class project related to the course objective. The project for the class may be assigned. However, depending on the class size and background it could be job related.

Exams:
Three midterm exams and the final exam.

Textbooks:
*Tentative-check the Office of the Registrar Textbooks for the official list*
Required--A.C. Ugural and S.K. Fenster, "Advanced Strength and Applied Elasticity," 4th ed., Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-047392-8.Additional References: R.G. Budynas, "Advanced Strength and Applied Stress Analysis, McGraw Hill; S.P. Timoshenko and J.N. Goodier, "Theory of Elasticity", 3rd ed., McGraw Hill.

Computer Requirements:
ProEd minimum computer requirements; access to FEA software (i.e., ABAQUS, ANSYS, etc.), MATLAB, and Maple (http://www.maplesoft.com/). The student version of Matlab is reasonably priced. Details can be found at the website of The Mathworks, Inc. (http://www.mathworks.com/products/education/student_version/sc/index.shtml). Many programs and apps are available remotely. Some, like MATLAB, and SAS are through Purdue GoRemote (http://goremote.ics.purdue.edu). Others you may need to purchase and the instructor will provide this information (students who do not have access to any FEA Code/Software need to buy a copy of ANSYS/ED on CD). Information on access is usually provided during the first week of the semester, in initial handouts provided prior to the beginning of the semester, on the course website, etc. Homework assignments and solution to the exams and homeworks, announcements and clarification will be posted on the course Web site.
