Pedagogic informations

Training objectives
This teaching is devoted to the placing of the student in context: Realization of a project design with high mechanical orientation.
It aims to expose students to the constraints of Computer Aided Mechanical Design and get them to implement and combine their skills in CAD , Pre-design, finite elements, materials, solid mechanics, for a fabrication.

Course content
The course is organized in project sessions supervised by teachers of different disciplines in a project to build context.
Phase 1): Conduct a functional analysis in order to provide a relevant solution in agreement with the proposed subject.
During this phase, the students organized in small teams (2-3 students) are encouraged to exploit their achievements, and to assess the limits of their skills they will complete as necessary to best meet the proposed subject.
Phase 2): Development of a technical solution
Development of a technical solution, in agreement with the functional analysis, the latter incorporates design stages, choice of materials, use of CAD design software and digital design (CATIA), finite element (ABAQUS) to to provide the most complete as possible concrete solution
Through the sessions are asked teams to propose an organization and effective planning and a stain distribution management.
