Semester: SEM1
Originating Department: School of Intelligent Manufacturing Ecosystem, Taicang
Pre-requisites: N/A

 Aims This course introduces students to modern mechanical design with the emphasis of machine elements and analyze these elements based upon extensive application of physics, mathematics and core mechanical engineering principles, including solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and manufacturing. The student will learn major machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, and so on. The student will learn recommendations to make designs more economical, to simplify processes, and to minimize energy use and environmental impact. A project is an integral part of this course and exposes the student to various mechanical design processes and practices.
 Learning outcomes A Understand the structure of materials effects the mechanical properties of those materialsB Model failure mechanisms in shafts and beams, and calculate fatigue life of mechanical systemsC Design shafts and shaft couplings, and select appropriate bearings for a mechanical systemD Analyze the lifetime of a sliding and rolling bearing elementsE Design, model, and analyze gearing systems, lead screws, belt drives, and springs
 Method of teaching and learning This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures and tutorials. Two coursework will be assigned in Week 5 and 10, respectively.
