Machine Design MSE 320 (4)

Review of stress and strain in solids, superposition, energy theorems, theories of failure, elastic and inelastic analysis of symmetrical bending, torsion of circular members, and virtual work. Adequacy assessment and synthesis of machine elements with a focus on the design process. Static failure of ductile and brittle materials, fatigue analysis of structures. Topics include the design of welds, bolted connections, springs and shafts. Solution strategies include both analytical and finite element methods. Prerequisite: MSE 100 or ENSC 104, MSE 220 or ENSC 231, MSE 221 or ENSC 281. MSE 100 may be taken concurrently. Students with credit for ENSC 382 may not take MSE 320 for further credit.
