Modeling, Designand Rapid Prototyping Of Mechanical Systems
University of Siena - Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione e Scienze Matematiche
Date of the course: July 18-21, 2016
Schedule of the classes: h. 10.00-13.00; h. 15.00-18.00.
Duration of the course: 24 hours
The course will give a general overview on the problems related to the design of simple mechanical systems. Firstly we will discuss the main mechanical design principles and the main guidelines that we can follow, in other words, the design flow: starting from the idea, considering design requirements and constraints, refining the design, virtual prototyping and rapid prototyping. We will see how to design and model mechanical components with 3D modeling software and we will have an overview on tools for virtual prototyping (FEM analysis, dynamic simulation, etc.). We will see the main functional features and main design parameters of common mechanical components:
