Machine Design Part I

“Machine Design Part I” is the first course in an in-depth three course series of “Machine Design.” The “Machine Design” Coursera series covers fundamental mechanical design topics, such as static and fatigue failure theories, the analysis of shafts, fasteners, and gears, and the design of mechanical systems such as gearboxes. Throughout this series of courses we will examine a number of exciting design case studies, including the material selection of a total hip implant, the design and testing of the wing on the 777 aircraft, and the impact of dynamic loads on the design of an bolted pressure vessel. In this first course, you will learn robust analysis techniques to predict and validate design performance and life. We will start by reviewing critical material properties in design, such as stress, strength, and the coefficient of thermal expansion. We then transition into static failure theories such as von Mises theory, which can be utilized to prevent failure in static loading applications such as the beams in bridges. Finally, we will learn fatigue failure criteria for designs with dynamic loads, such as the input shaft in the transmission of a car.

machine design in 37 reviews

It's very useful if you want to review the machine design content.

<3 The Machine Design Part I covers a huge amount of basic concepts/theories in a short time.It was very useful to get a clear understanding of engineering design.

This is a very comprehensive course on machine design and the instructor is very good with explanation .

Waiting for Machine Design II and III.

I got the complete knowledge about the machine design process with all minute detail.

Best Course This course really help me to enhance my knowledge about machine design and material selection.

Excellent course for machine design.

Looking forward to Machine Design Part 2 and 3 Its a very good course , a lot of things to learn Clear and useful, I enjoyed it!

I am looking forward to MD Part II.

Looking forward for subsequent parts.

looking forward to enroll in further courses to offer .THANK YOU Exceptional course material along with an outstanding teacher..

looking forward for next parts The course present a good explanation of the fundamentals of design in static and fatigue failure.

Looking forward for parts 2 and 3.

Looking forward to the following courses The course material was pretty good and the course was quite challenging.

case studies in 8 reviews

Excellent teaching and use of examples and real-world problems/case studies.Waiting for the other part 2 and 3 Great for brushing up and solidifying the basics of machine design.

The case studies really helped in making life easier as it helped to understand the subject better.Thank you!!

The case studies brought a really new insight on the "out of the box" thinking.

Very Good course that concentrates on the key concepts with some case studies that are very interesting.

Very nice introductory course in Machine design, the two case studies chosen is very informative.

Course content was good but found instructors presence in discussion forum somewhat lacking.Questions asked in the forum remain unanswered more so related to case studies.Coursera certificate design is also sub par with the instructor’s signature barely legible(only artifacts) and no watermark.Would request Georgia Inst.

my sincere and heartful thanks to Dr.Kathryn Wingate and coursera.MS wingate no one has taught me like you, especially the case studies.

fatigue failure in 8 reviews

this course very help me in solving fatigue failure problem and also made me more confident in static as well as in fatigue problem.

I have a better understanding of fatigue failure as a result of this class.

Great look at fatigue failure.

I enjoyed the practical and summarized approach (both static and fatigue failure).

Course provides a good refreshment about static and fatigue failures.

This course was good, I enjoyed learning topics like Number designation of metals, Static and Fatigue Failure and their theories, Stress concentration Factors, Endurance, Life of Rotation of parts.

Dr. Kathryn Wingate used a clear language and I appreciate her.

Dr. Kathryn Wingate was very persuasive throughout the course and the way she taught is completely commendable.

very good Dr. Kathryn Wingate provides a thorough explanation.

it was a nice experince learning with Dr. Kathryn Wingate.

good explain skill Perfect please i can't wait for Part 2 Excellent!, waiting for the part two Dr. Kathryn Wingate, is a great teacher, the course was amazing it helped me building concept & clearly understanding them, Quiz & Worksheet helped me in revision & deep understanding.I would like to thank Dr. Kathryn Wingate & Coursera team.Thanks.
