ENG08031 2019 Design, Analysis and Simulation 401
This module introduces the learner to systematic design techniques for product/system specification; concept evaluation and design analysis within a project-based learning context.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Demonstrate understanding of systematic design techniques which include technical, ethical and societal components.
Access and assemble information from reference sources (e.g. standards databases; patent databases).
Generate engineering design decisions based on sound criteria, analysis and evaluation and which take due note of manufacturing, legislative and other techniques.
Create professional reports on the engineering design process, including software output.
Analyse a variety of engineering mechanisms using computer analysis and simulation.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
The module will be taught using problem based-learning and practicals.
Module Assessment Strategies
The module will be continuously assessed (100%)
Repeat assessment will require resubmission of design reports.
The ‘Total Design’ philosophy
Market analysis/user needs and demands
The Product Design Specification
Conceptual design and evaluation
Strategies for detailed design and component design case study (eg, bearing/gearing/shaft/clutch design)
Analysis and simulation
Simulation of mechanisms using motion analysis
Simulation of Engineering problems using spreadsheets and other tools
Stress analysis and component optimisation using finite element analysis

Based around a core of design activities, this book presents the design function as a systematic and disciplined process, the objective of which is to create innovative products that satisfy customer needs. The author is widely regarded as a foremost authority on an integrated approach to product engineering. Highly suitable for all students in engineering, industrial design, architecture and computer science, as well as for the professional engineer and designer who will find in it a very useful framework to assist their design practice.
The classroom used for teaching the module will need to have PCs with spreadsheet software (e.g. Excel), FEA software (e.g. ANSYS), 3D CAD software (e.g., SolidWorks)
