Learning Objectives - Last name/s A-L
1) Course's general purpose
To make the pupil aware of the operating principles of some mechanisms and mechanical applications through specific exercises. Understanding the functioning principles of the analyzed mechanisms. Overall sizing of the main mechanical systems.
2) Provided knowledge
Systematic knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of mechanical design of industrial engineering and its methods. In particular: understanding of which are the most suitable methods in order to define a product and its characteristics; knowledge of the technology of the materials that can be used, of the mechanical study of parts and assemblies, their dimensioning, their static and dynamic behaviour and interactions between components. The technologies for their production and their graphic representation are also areas of knowledge and understanding.
3) Applying knowledge
Applying knowledge and understanding problems related to identifying, formulating and solving industrial and specifically mechanical engineering problems, defining the specifications, technical, but also social, health and safety, environmental and commercial constraints, and resolving them using established methods, thus leading to engineering projects adapted to the level of knowledge and understanding developed. Projects may concern products, devices, machines, energy systems, automatic systems.
