ME 3510 - Computer Aided Design

A detailed study of the use of computer-aided design tools in the engineering design process with a focus on solid modeling and finite element analysis. Technical writing instruction regarding design reports. Team design project that emphasizes proper use of CAD tools, documented in a formal design report.

Requisites: (ENG 1510 or 1610) and ET 1100 and 2220 and MATH 3200 and Soph or higher
Credit Hours: 3
General Education Code: 1JE
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to create fully constrained solid models that can be quickly modified using standard software tools.
  • Students will be able to use finite element analysis software to mesh a solid model, apply meaningful loads and boundary conditions, complete a linear static stress analysis, and interpret the results.
  • Students will be able to use standard software tools to create engineering drawings, or other documents, to fully describe the geometries and dimensions of parts, as well as to document assemblies according to standard practice.
  • Students will be able to use standard software tools to create part assemblies and check for clearances.
  • Students will be able to use, identify and explain standard features in solid modeling including protrusions, revolutions, cutouts, and patterns.
