Course content

In addition to the functions and applications, the structural design and the dimensioning and calculations are also the focus of the lectures and exercises. The following machine elements are addressed in the course: shaft-hub connections, snap connections, welding, soldering, gluing, riveting, pin and bolt connections.

Learning outcomes

The  students  are  able  to  dimension links between machine elements and components based on the state of the art. The students know all of the machine elements and are able to make the correct selection from an engineering perspective depending on the situation. The students can use a modern 3D-CAD system. The students know how to handle machine element calculation software.
