Machine Elements Design in Mechanical Engineering
Module | Outcomes and capabilities

This module focuses on the static elements of machines such as frame, bolted connection and compression spring design. You will also learn about other available design accelerators and calculators.

You can just watch the videos and in this case the module will take about 15 minutes, or take the hypothetical project we provide and go over all the main productivity tools to transform your awareness about these tools into a skill.

By the end of the module, you will learn the following skills:
  • Use CAD efficiently to design machines and mechanisms
  • Design and calculate bolted connections
  • Design and adjust frames
  • Design and calculate compression springs
  • Find other design accelerators and calculators
