ME 291 - Lab for ME 290

Credit Hours: 1

The projects in this lab will be student driven and will be done as a capstone. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) will be introduced as a possible mean for students to perform the necessary Stress/Deformation Analysis. Several machine design projects will be completed to review the subjects covered in the machine design course. A few stress analysis cases will be carried out using Algor software.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • write technical reports;
  • enable the student to make safe yet economical calculations for typical machine elements made of common engineering materials;
  • utilize computer applications (Finite Element Analysis, FEA) to design parts and problem solving;
  • utilize a Capstone experience to complete a project by himself and the knowledge obtained in various courses; and
  • use industrial catalogs for design and selection of standard stock parts.

Prerequisites: MT 121 or MT 125, ME 104 or permission of the instructor.
