MEC E 360 – Mechanical Design II
The objective of MecE 360 is to learn how to apply theory and standard principles to the design and selection of shafts, gears, bearings, and connections with considerations materials, fatigue loading and stress concentrations. Students apply these machine design concepts in a challenging group design project of a gearbox (e.g., can crusher, ball mill, meat grinder).
MEC E 687 Introduction to Impact Dynamics of Materials
The objective of MecE 687 is to introduce students to the various topics needed to solve impact problems in materials: applied mathematics, wave mechanics, mechanics and materials, fracture mechanics, dynamic behavior of materials, experimental mechanics, materials science, computational mechanics, and penetration mechanics. At the end of this course, students should be able to apply to the planning, execution, and analysis of high-rate experiments involving materials, including impact tests.
MecE 668 – Design of Experiments
The objective of MEC E 668 is to introduce students to the various topics needed to perform and analyze experiments: types of experiments, design for experiments, diagnostics and tools, analysis (statistics, image processing, Matlab), and dissemination (writing and presenting). At the end of this course, students are able to apply to the planning, execution, and analysis of experiments in any discipline. This course is foundational for students working on experiments.
