Machine Design Volume I

Lecture reprint for the winter semester 2016/2017

Georg Jacobs

The lecture reprints "Machine design" Volume I and Volume II fully contain the topics in the "Machine Design II/III" course. They are also working documents for the practical exercises in this subject and are approved for completing the computing tasks in the "Machine Design II/III" exam. The subject is to be read by all students of the Bachelor's degree programs Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering, specialism Machine Construction. The reprints are suitable for independent study and are intended as a reference work for the study of Mechanical Engineering, but also for engineers who are active in industry.

Machine Design II

Practical exercise reprint for the winter semester 2016/2017

Georg Jacobs

The "Machine Design II" practical exercise reprint contains exercises on the topics for the associated course. Some topic-specific, fundamental computational operations for each topic are initially presented based on short tasks. The practical exercise reprint then provides students the opportunity to study the topic in greater detail using more complex tasks.
Short solutions and extensive sample solutions are given for each task. The practical exercise reprint therefore supports students with independent study and in the deeper understanding of the respective topic.

Tribology

M. Plogmann, G. Jacobs

The aim of Tribology is the minimisation of friction and wear occurring in nearly all machine elements with contact surfaces under relative motion. The course “Tribology” is offered at RWTH Aachen University for advanced studies in mechanical engineering and master students. The lecture documentation reviews the basics of Tribology. It deals with the interactions between the contacting surfaces, example given contact processes, friction and wear mechanisms. The properties of the contacting bodies as well as the intermediate medium are presented and the basics of fluid dynamics are explained. On this basis, different machine elements, for example plain bearings, gear wheels, rolling bearings and seals, are discussed concerning tribological interactions. Different influences on the performance of the machine elements are presented in consideration of the basics of Tribology.
