II. Course Description

This course concerns the analysis, selection, and design of industrial components such as shafts, gears, bearings, springs, and fasteners used in mechanisms and machines. The fundamentals of machine design, including the design process, failure prevention under static and variable loading, and characteristics of the principal types of mechanical elements are covered. A practical approach to the subject through a wide range of real-world applications is presented; and the link between design and analysis is addressed. In this course, students will be familiarized with both the basis for decisions and the standards of industrial components.

You are responsible for all work covered in class, whether or not you are in attendance. You are strongly encouraged to ask questions in class. You expected to read the assigned materials before coming to class. You and I are expected to show up on time for class. You are encouraged to work together on homework assignments, but not off of one another. All work on exams is to be done by the individual. The classroom is to be a cooperative learning environment. You should arrive in class with your textbook, your notebook, and an engineering calculator. I will provide copies of old exams for you to look at. The grades of all assignments are posted on Angel weekly. The solutions of all assignments and tests are posted on Angel one day after its due date.

VIII. Evaluation
You will be evaluated in a number of different ways including homework, project, and examinations. The percentage breakdown of these pieces is as follows: 15 % Homework 5% Class participation 25 % Final Exam 30 % Three Exams @ 10% Each 10% Presentation 15% Project Total: 100%

Grade Scale: A > 90% B 80-89% C 70-79% D 60-69% F < 60% When assigning final letter grades, I will use +s and -s.


Academic Honesty

While it is assumed that no student would submit any material, be it homework, quiz, exam or any other assignment for grading which is not solely her/his own work, the following policy shall be implemented in cases of academic dishonesty: First offense, all persons involved will receive no credit for the assignment or test. The VPAA will also be notified of this action. Second offense, all persons involved will receive a grade of F for the course.


Americans with Disabilities Act

Students with any type of disability that may require accommodation should contact the instructor as early in the semester as possible to discuss the needs. In addition, as mandated by Federal Law, if you require any modifications or accommodations for this class, please contact the Director of Academic Resources to fill out the appropriate paperwork.

XI. Homework Policy

Homework is an important extension of activities begun in school by students under the guidance of the instructor and continued at home. Homework provides you with an opportunity to practice the materials that are covered in class in order to develop facility with the materials and to provide ongoing preparation for tests. It also provides an opportunity for you to develop and hone your technical communication skills. A secondary goal of homework is to stimulate individual initiative, personal responsibility and selfdirection. 1. There will be a weekly homework. It will be due the same day the following week. 2. Homework will be collected at the beginning of class. 3. The course name, name of student, date of submission, and homework assignment number must be written on the first page. 4. Late homework will not be accepted and will result in a grade of zero for that assignment. If you are late for class and homework has been collected at that point, yours will be considered late and not accepted. 5. Show all your works. This includes references, figures, equations, substitutions, units, and final answer. 6. Your writing must be legible. You are expected to use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. 7. Your work must be neat, orderly and uncrowded, without a lot of erasures and no frazzled page edges. 8. Only the material relevant to the homework must be in the submitted work. 9. Each homework page should include page number and must be arranged in numerical order. 10. Each problem is to begin with a problem number and problem statement, followed by your work. You must provide enough written explanation so that the grader can follow your work. 11. The grade on homework assignments will be based both on the technical quality of your work and the written presentation of the work. 12. Generally, each problem should start on a new page. However, for short problems, you may put more than one on a page, but no more than three. 13. In using any equation, the reference must be addressed. If the equation is not from any reference (e.g. textbook), the derivation must be clearly illustrated. For example, if the derivation has used new forces or new coordinate system, a figure is needed. 14. Always perform the sanity check. If the result of a problem is highly off limit, there is a negative point on that. For example, if the wing area of an aircraft is found to be 10,000,000,000 m2, this is clearly wrong. Thus the results must be reasonable.

15. In the calculation process, the number of digits after decimal point must be reasonable. For example, if the answer is between 10 and 20, you cannot use more than two digits after the decimal point (two significant figures). If the answer is in the order of 1,000,000, you should not use any decimal at all. For example the answer of x = 8.249874564874 has a negative point. Thus the number must the rounded to two significant figures (e.g. x = 8.25). 16. Be consistent. For instance, you should not use a symbol (i.e. a) for two different purposes in the same problem. 17. Do not manipulate the numbers. You must be change the numbers to looks right. A wrong answer is far better than a manipulated number. 18. Always show unit of any answer. 19. Draw a box around the final answer. 20. If you are drawing a technical device, it must look like the real one to the outside observer. For instance the drawing of an aircraft must not look like a car. 21. If you are including a figure in your assignment, it must have figure number, plus figure name. Furthermore, each coordinate must have a name, numbers and a unit. 22. The division of each coordinate must be reasonable. For example a coordinate of a figure cannot be divided into only two pieces or into 500 pieces. Some thing around 5 to 10 pieces is reasonable. 23. Do not include any page or any writings that is not related to the assignment. 24. If the homework assignment is more than a page, the pages must be stapled or tied together or bound. If the papers are stapled, nothing must be under staples. 25. Each homework assignment must have at least homework number, name of the student, course name (and course code), and date of submission. 26. If you are using an engineering software (i.e. MathCad, Excel,), make sure you know its principles. 27. If you are using MathCad, the length of an equation must not exceed one page. 28. If you are using MathCad, show the answer of each equation with the relevant unit. 29. If you are using Excel, you must show all equations in a separate space, since the Excel only prints the results. 30. If you are not using an engineering software for your calculation, you must show all substitutions. 31. Do not include any unused number, unused calculation and unused figure in your assignment. 32. If you type the homework assignment, you will earn extra 10% in the grade of that assignment.

XII. Project Report Format

1. Most items in section XI (Homework policy) apply to a project report. 2. A project needs a separate first page, a table of contents, list of symbols (with their names and units), and references at the end. 3. Divide your project into less than 10 sections. Each section must have a number and a name. 4. A project needs to have an introduction and a problem statement. 5. Most important part of a project is analysis. Bunch of numbers without interpretation and analysis worth nothing. Each section must have an analysis part to demonstrate your conclusion from those answers. 6. Do not copy a full sentence or paragraph or picture from any book or paper or website, without proper citation. When you quote from a reference, you must properly cite the source.

XIII. Examination Policy

1. There will be four examinations: Exam I, Exam II, Exam III and a Final. The final examination will be comprehensive. 2. Exams are open book. 3. No make-up exams will be given.
