Minor Programme

Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing / Linköping

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

Spring Semester

BSc Thesis-Mechanical Engineering 18 ECTS

and elective courses from list.

Mechatronics – 6 ECTS

Course Code: TMMS21

The course follows the logical information flow in modern mechatronic products, from sensor signal to actuation. Simulation technology is central for the course and used for analysing energy flow, stability, controllers and performance. The course tries to provide a technology-neutral view onto motion controlled machines, but fluid power is slightly more present in examples and applications. Mechatronics is a highly creative field of engineering so some design of sub-systems is part of the assignment. The course covers sensor technology for measuring force, temperature, position, velocity and acceleration. The transfer and processing of the signals of these quantities to measurement values are covered also. Information interfaces like CAN and field busses are also presented. The vast number of standards within the field of mechatronics is briefly covered. The fundamental mathematical models for the DC-motor, fluid power rotational machines and pneumatic compression is presented. Particular the energy aspects of them. Control technologies are studied mainly by the use of MOSFET-transistors and fluid power valves.
