3. Course contents *

During the practical classes CAE we will deal with structural analyses, flow analyses (CFD) and thermal analyses. With the aid of finite element techniques we will study: linear static determined problems, contactsituations, vibrations, fatigue problems, ... There will also be paid attention to mapping, where the results of preceding analyses will be used as input for stress- or a distortion analyses. In the third part, we will deal with kinematic and dynamic simulations so as to get to Mechanical Event Simulation.
During the lectures of machine construction, the following topics concerning dimensioning, control and selection of engine products will be explained: spiral bearings, bearings, belt drives, spur gears,  ...
During the exercises the focus will be on the application of the theory via problems, as they occur in reality.
