ENGR 6161 Sensors and Actuators

Elements of smart sensors and systems and their structures; properties of various smart materials including piezoelectric, pyroelectric, shape memory alloys, Rheological fluids, piezoresistive and magnetostrictive; physical and mathematical basis of smart materials; characterization of smart multi-functional materials; sensors and actuators in mechatronics; design and fabrication of sensors and actuators by micromachining; survey of classical system theory; design of sensors and actuators for applications in industrial and medical robotics, haptics, and other systems such as aerospace and smart structures. The students are required to undertake a project work involving design of smart sensors/actuators for specific applications.

Shear and bending moment diagrams. Lectures: three hours per week. Tutorial: two hours per week.

ENGR 243 Dynamics

Prerequisite: EMAT 213; ENGR 242. Kinematics of a particle and rigid body; forces and accelerations; work and energy; impulse and momentum; dynamics of a system of particles and rigid bodies, introduction to vibrations. Lectures: three hours per week. Tutorial: two hours per week.

MECH 313 Machine Drawing and Design

Prerequisite: MECH 211. The use of drawings and other graphical methods in the process of engineering design. Industrial standards and specifications, standard components and their use in product design. Detailed study of standard machine elements and assemblies, including various types of mechanical drives, cams, clutches, couplings, brakes, seals, fasteners, springs, and bearings; their representation and function in design and working drawings. Dimensioning and tolerance systems related to manufacturing processes, interchangeability, quality control, patent procedures. Pencil thinking and computer graphics in the design process. Computer-aided machine drawing. A student design project will be an integral part of this course. A four-hour introduction to machine shop techniques forms part of the tutorial. Lectures: three hours per week. Tutorial: two hours per week.
