EGN 3015C - Mechanical Lab Design 1


Credits: 3

Prerequisites: EGN 3321 - Dynamics  and EGN 3331 - Strength of Materials  and EGN 2002C - Skills and Design 2   
Course Description: This course aims to build on skills learned during in proceeding courses and put them to use towards designing and executing mechanical engineering laboratories. Student teams will investigate and then develop demonstrable laboratory apparatuses of mechanical engineering principles and phenomena including heat transfer, fluids, vibrations, and control systems.  Students will be guided through the process with educational primers on principles that will be investigated while being taught general design practices and processes. The course will include functional representations, concept evaluation, planning, and require extensive written communication and documentation. Teams will utilize Labview and data acquisition (DAQ) cards for the development of the mechanical systems laboratories.  This course will enhance students’ knowledge of design processes as well as core mechanical engineering topics and prepare them to tackle future open ended problems in their capstone design course.
