Intended learning outcomes

This course gives a general description of design, function and use of machine elements. After the course the student shuold be able to:

  • describe the function of the most common machine elements.
  • analyze the function of different machine elements use in mechanical designs.
  • design and dimension machine elements in mechanical systems.
  • compare and evaluate the suitability of fastning and transmission elements in mechanical systems.
  • discuss the plausibility of the results.
  • Course content

    Fastening elements ( bolts, rivets, springs, shaft connections) and
    Transmission elements ( gears, couplings, brakes, belt drives).

    Teaching and working methods

    The basic content is given in lectures, and in supervised exercises. In a laboratory exercise the practical build-up of some elements is demonstrated.
