ME 432 - Machinery Design

Class Hours: 3, Units: 3
Prerequisite(s): ME 330 , ME 332 
This course will cover kinematics and dynamics of machinery and the synthesis of mechanisms to perform desired motions and tasks of mechanisms using linkages, gears, cams, and actuators. Analysis of mechanisms will be studied to determine their rigid-body dynamic behavior. Position, velocity, and acceleration of mechanisms and force analysis of mechanisms will be covered. ProE Mechanism, which is a virtual prototyping tool for mechanism analysis and design, will be demonstrated. Students will use ProE/Creo to design, animate, analyze, and optimize complex threedimensional mechanisms.
