Twin Programme

Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing / Linköping Fall

The module makes focus on developing abilities and skills in mechanical design and aspects of manufacture what is important features of the competence in product development. Through the studies of the module “Computer-aided Analysis of Structures”students learn to perform engineering analysis of mechanical structures and get an opportunity to practice by carrying out individual project. Theoretical background in numerical methods, fluid mechanics and heat transfers serve as the basis for engineering system analysis including phenomena of different physical nature. Aspects of manufacturing technology applicable in developing technological path for originally designed parts id touched.

The Courses

Fall Semester

Fluid Power Systems – 6 ECTS 

Course contents: Energy transmission based on hydraulics and pneumatics. Basic fluid dynamics. Component knowledge with respect to functionality and design of pumps, motors, cylinders, valves, accumulators, filters and line components. Characteristics of fluids. System design for different hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Calculation methods for components and systems. Basic system principles for control of position, velocity/speed, force/torque and power. Principles for load sensing hydraulic systems and hydrostatic transmissions. Characteristics of proportional- and servo-valves. Automatic sequence control. Measurement transducers in test-stands and control systems

Product Development – 6 ECTS

Course contents: Different types of development processes and organizations , product planning , customer requirements and specifications , concept generation , concept evaluation , prototyping and testing, product architecture, design, environment-driven product development , production, adaptation and patents.

Aircraft and Vehicle Design – 6 ECTS

Course contents: 

Wood - Realisation – 6 ECTS

Course contents: The course consists of some interconnected parts: Wood products – Material selection, mechanical requirements, joining methods, adhesives and surface treatment. Wood production - machining, sanding, lacquering, bending and mold-forming. Swedish Wood Manufacturing Industry - Orientation, products, exports and imports, its development and importance for Sweden. Why wood? - How does the production methods of wood differ compared to other materials? Theory in the subjects above will also be sought for individually and presented both orally and in seminar reports. Then students will then immerse themselves into a subject that they present to the other students. Some of the lecturers will be performed by experts from industry and other relevant organizations. The course includes a project where the students will manufacture a specific product based on given conditions. The goal for the project is a complete product and to this a report describing the industrial production of the same product. It is of great importance in this course that the student should learn by practice and in addition to this relate to industrial manufacturing and theoretical aspects. 

Introduction to Computational Mechanics – 6 ECTS

Course contents: 

Vibrations and Fatigue in Mechanical Structures – 6 ECTS

Course contents: On vibrations: Fundamental relationships describing the behaviour of vibrating mechanical systems. Equations of motion for vibrating systems. Influence of mass, stiffness, and damping. Resonances and its consequences for the mechanical system. Vibrations of discrete systems and continuous systems. On fatigue: Fundamental relationships describing the fatigue phenomenon. High-cycle fatigue and low-cycle fatigue. The Wöhler diagram and the Haigh diagram. Safety factors. Damage accumulation, the Palmgren-Miner rule. Load spectra. The Ramberg-Osgood material model. Fatigue life models according to Morrow and Coffin-Manson. Influence of stress concentration.
