Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
In this course, the following skills of the engineering studies will be promoted: - Improve the knowledge of mathematical methods, analytical, numerical and experimental aspects of engineering machines. - Design, calculate and product design with the knowledge and control of the uncertainty. - Apply the acquired knowledge and solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader contexts and multidisciplinary environments.
Description of contents: programme
1. Stress analysis and fatigue design methods by MEF. 2. Methodology for quantifying uncertainties in MEF methods. Application to the design of virtual laboratories 3. Concepts of metrology. Relationship between uncertainty and tolerance design. 4. Experimental techniques in mechanical engineering: extensometry. Monitoring application to fatigue tests. 5. Experimental techniques in mechanical engineering: photoelasticity. Monitoring application to fatigue tests. 6. Design of static and dynamic test machines controlled metrological quality.
Learning activities and methodology
The training activities include: - Lectures, where knowledge that students should acquire are presented. To facilitate their development students receive class notes and have basic reference texts that facilitates follow lessons and develop further work. - Performing related to the topic of the subject requiring the application of the concepts acquired works. - Lab, where students experimentally verify the theoretical concepts and results seen in class. - Lab in computer classroom, where you work with high-level programs that address the issues raised in the subject.
