Tribological components (2009)

Published: 27 March 2009

The course is based on problem solving. An existing product is used as an example throughout the course and all assignments concern analyses and redesign of this product.

Topics treated are:
  • Introduction to tribology and mechanical components
  • Introduction to tribology in manufacturing exemplified with turning
  • Failure mechanisms in mechanical components;
  • Analyses of the forces in a mechanical product;
  • Estimation of the degree of efficiency in a product;
  • Standard design methods for gears, bearings and joints
  • Modeling of non-standard components and the use of bearing theories applied in similar components.
