Mechanical analysis and validation in design
Master in Design Engineering for Industry 5.0 (Plan: 498 - Estudio: 385)


Department assigned to the subject: Mechanical Engineering Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Design and develop 3D models in real time, as well as their subsequent redesign and optimization. It will analyze how the life cycle influences the design, for example the design oriented to the maintenance or the recycling, and how a model-based definition (MBD) approach allows to improve the time to market, optimize the efficiency and increase the quality of the products. To do this, it will delve into: - Knowledge of the main tools and specialized design methodologies in mechanical engineering. - Knowledge of the influence of the life cycle on design, in particular maintenance and recycling - The use of local and global optimization algorithms for design, through computer methods and the use of heuristic techniques applied to design optimization.
