Mechanical Engineering Design
 Simple journal bearing involves fluid flow, heat transfer, friction,
energy transport, material selection, thermo-mechanical treatments,
statistical descriptions, and so on.

 A building is environmentally controlled. The heating, ventilation,

and air-conditioning considerations are sufficiently specialized that
some speak of heating, ventilating, and air- conditioning design as if
it is separate and distinct from mechanical engineering design.

 Similarly, internal-combustion engine design, turbo machinery

design, and jet-engine design are sometimes considered discrete
 Design is an innovative and highly iterative process. It is also a
decision-making process.

 Decisions sometimes have to be made with limited information,

occasionally with just the right amount of information, or with an
excess of partially contradictory information.

 Engineers have to communicate effectively and work with people

of many disciplines.

 Engineering tools (such as mathematics, statics, computers,

graphics, and languages) are combined to produce a plan that,
when carried out, produces a product that is functional ,safe,
reliable, competitive, usable, manufacturable, and
marketable, regardless of who builds it or who uses it.

assigns a value of 0.25 to
coefficient of friction.

 He repeatedly employed the

same value of coefficient of

 Specific value 0.25 for

coefficient of friction for most of
the materials is appropriate.

fascinated with the
idea of flying.

of parachute and
giant crossbow
were interpreted
and tested.
Sir Isaac Newton

A British physicist and


 Respected as the most influential

scientist of all time.

 “Mathematical Principles of
Natural Philosophy” is considered
as most prominent contribution to
classical mechanics.
“Nature and nature’s laws lay
hid in night. God said let
NEWTON be, and all was light”  Also made contributions in the
Epitaph by Pope field of optics and calculus.

 To design is either to formulate a plan for the satisfaction

of a specified need or to solve a problem.

 If the plan results in the creation of something having a

physical reality then the product must be functional, safe,
reliable, competitive, usable, manufacturable, and
A Design Must Be
 Functional- fill a need or customer expectation
 Safe- not hazardous to users or bystanders
 Reliable- conditional probability that product will perform
its intended function without failure to a certain age.
 Competitive- contender in the market
 Usable- accommodates human size and strength
 Manufacturable- minimal number of parts and suitable for
 Marketable- product can be sold and serviced
Design Process Actions
 Conceive alternative solutions
 Analyze, test, simulate, or predict performance of alternatives
 Choose the “best” solution
 Implement design
Design is…
 An innovative and iterative process
 A communication intensive activity
 Subject to constraints
Standard Design Process
 The complete design process from
start to finish, is often outlined as in
the figure.

 Begins with an identification of need

and a decision to do something about

 After many iterations, the process

ends with the presentation of the
plans for satisfying the need.

 Several design phases may be

repeated throughout the life of the
Phase of the Design Process
 Identification of need generally starts the design process. The need may
only be a vague discontent, a feeling of uneasiness, or a sense that
something is not right.

 The definition of problem is more specific and must include all the
specifications for the object that is to be designed.

 The synthesis of a scheme connecting possible system elements is

sometimes called the invention of the concept or concept design. This is
the first and most important step in the synthesis task.

 Analyses must be performed to assess whether the system performance is


 Synthesis, analysis and optimization are intimately and iteratively


 Evaluation is the final proof of a successful design and usually involves the
testing of a prototype in the laboratory.

 Presentation is a selling job.

Recognition of need
 The process of designing begins when there is a need.

 Wherever there are people there are problems needing solutions. In some cases
the designer may have to invent a product. An example might be a game for
blind persons.

 At other times the designer may change an existing design. (If the handle of a pot
becomes too hot to touch, it must be redesigned.)

 Designers also improve existing products. They make the product work even
better. Could the chair in the waiting room of a bus or train station be altered so
that waiting seems shorter?
The Definition of the problem
 It involves thorough specification of items to be designed. i.e. what is to be

 The problem definition cannot be vague. Some examples of need and problem
definition are listed below:

 Need: The handle of a pot becomes too hot to hold when the pot is heated.

 Prob. Definition : Design a handle that remains cool when the pot is heated.
 FUNCTION: A functional object must solve the problem described in the problem
definition. The basic question to ask is : "What, exactly, is the use of the article?"

 APPEARANCE: How will the object look? The shape, color, and texture should make
the object attractive.

 MATERIALS: What materials are available to you?

 CONSTRUCTION: Will it be hard to make? Consider what methods you will need to
cut, shape, form, join, and finish the material.

 SAFETY: The object you design must be safe to use. It should not cause accidents.
Analysis & Optimization
 Synthesis and analysis and optimization are intimately and iteratively related.

 Both analysis and optimization require that we construct or devise abstract

models of the system that will admit some form of mathematical analysis.

 We call these models mathematical models.

 In creating them it is our hope that we can find one that will simulate the real
physical system very well.
Developing alternative solutions
 You should produce a number of solutions. It is very important that you
write or draw every idea on paper as it occurs to you. This will help you
remember and describe them more clearly. It is also easier to discuss
them with other people if you have a drawing.

 These first sketches do not have to be very detailed or accurate. They

should be made quickly. The important thing is to record all your ideas.
Do not be critical. Try to think of lots of ideas, even some wild ones. The
more ideas you have, the more likely you are to end up with a good
Choosing a solution
 You may find that you like several of the solutions. Eventually, you must choose one.
Usually, careful comparison with the original design brief will help you to select the

 You must also consider:

 Your own skills.
 The materials available.
 Time needed to build each solution.
 Cost of each solution.

 Deciding among the several possible solutions is not always easy. Then it helps to
summarize the design requirements and solutions and put the summary in a chart.
Which would you choose? In cases like this, let it be the one you like best.
Design Evaluation
 Testing and evaluating answers three basic questions:

 Does it work?
 Does it meet the problem definition?
 Will modifications improve the solution?

 The question "does it work?" is basic to good design. It has to be answered.

 This same question would be asked by an engineer designing a bridge, by the designer of
a subway car, or by an architect planning a new school.

 If you were to make a mistake in the final design of the pencil holder what would happen?
The result might simply be unattractive. At worst, the holder would not work well. Not so
if a designer makes mistakes in a car's seat belt design. Someone's life may be in danger!
Models & Prototypes
 A model is a full-size or small-scale simulation of an object. Architects,
engineers, and most designers use models. Models are one more step in
communicating an idea. It is far easier to understand an idea when seen in
three-dimensional form. A scale model is used when designing objects that
are very large.

 A prototype is the first working version of the designer's solution. It is

generally full-size and often handmade. For a simple object such as a pencil
holder, the designer probably would not make a model. He or she may go
directly to a prototype.
 Documentation of design by drawing.

 Material specifications.

 Assembly list i.e., the creation of design database.

Design Engineer’s Responsibilities
 In general, design engineering is required to satisfy the
needs of customers (management, clients, consumers, etc.)
and is expected to do so in a competent, responsible,
ethical, and professional manner.

 Careful attention to the following action steps will help you to

organize your solution processing technique.
 Understand the problem.
 Identify the known.
 Identify the unknown and formulate the solution strategy.
 State all assumption and decision.
 Analyze the problem.
 Evaluate your solution.

 The design engineer’s professional obligations include

conducting activities in an ethical manner.
Standards and Codes
1. A standard is a set of specifications for parts, materials, or processes
intended to achieve uniformity, efficiency, and a specified quality.

1. A code is a set of specifications for the analysis, design, manufacture,

and construction of something.

1. All of the organizations and societies listed below have established

specifications for standards and safety or design codes.

 American Welding Society (AWS) (SAE)

International Bureau of Weights  American Bearing Manufactures
and Measures (BIPM) Association (ABMA)
 International Standards  British Standards Institute (BSI)
Organization (ISO)  Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI)
 National Institute for Standards  Institution of Mechanical
and Technology (NIST) Engineers (I.Mech.E)
 Society of Automotive Engineers
 The consideration of cost plays an
important role in the design decision

 The use of standard or stock sizes is a

first principle of cost reduction.

 Among the effects of design

specifications on costs, tolerances are
perhaps most significant.

 When two or more design

approaches are compared for cost,
there occurs a point corresponding to
equal cost, which is called the
breakeven point.
Stress and Strength
 The survival of many products depends on how the
designer adjusts the maximum stresses in a component to
be less than the component’s strength at specific locations
of interest.

 Strength is a property of a material or of a mechanical

element. The strength of an element depends on the choice,
the processing of the material.

 Stress is a state property at a specific point within a body,

which is a function of load, geometry, temperature, and
manufacturing processing.

 We shall use the capital letter S to denote strength, the

Greek letters σ (sigma) and τ (tau) to designate normal and
shear stresses, respectively.

Concept of Area Moment of Inertia
 The Area Moment of Inertia is an important parameter in
determine the state of stress in a part (component, structure),
the resistance to buckling, and the amount of deflection in a

 The area moment of inertia allows you to tell how stiff a

structure is.

 The Area Moment of Inertia, I, is a term used to describe the

capacity of a cross-section (profile) to resist bending. It is always
considered with respect to a reference axis, in the X or Y
direction. It is a mathematical property of a section concerned
with a surface area and how that area is distributed about the
reference axis. The reference axis is usually a centroidal axis.

Example – Optimization for Weight & Stiffness
Consider a solid rectangular section 2.0 inch wide by 1.0 high 1.0
I = (1/12)bh3 = (1/12)(2)(1)3 = .1667 , Area = 2 2.0
. consider a hollow rectangular section 2.25 inch wide by 1.25 high by
.125 thick. b
B = 2.25, H = 1.25 h H
b = 2.0, h = 1.0
I = (1/12)bh3 = (1/12)(2.25)(1.25)3 – (1/12)(2)(1)3= .3662 -.1667 = .1995
Area = 2.25x1.25 – 2x1 = .8125
(.1995 - .1667)/(.1667) x 100= .20 = 20% less deflection

Compare the weight of the two parts (same material and length), so
only the cross sectional areas need to be compared.

(2 - .8125)/(2) = .6 = 60% lighter

So, for a slightly larger outside dimension section, 2.25x1.25 instead of 2 x 1,

you can design a beam that is 20% stiffer and 60 % lighter

functioning of the component.
 Tolerance : is the allowable deviation for any given size to achieve a
proper function.

Basic Size
Fit : An assembly condition between hole and shaft
Clearance fit : largest permitted shaft diameter is less than the smallest hole
diameter, so that shaft can rotate or slide.

Interference fit : negative clearance exists between the sizes of holes and shaft.
Minimum permitted diameter of the shaft is larger than the maximum allowable
diameter of the holes. Members are intended to be permanently attached.

Transition fit : diameter of the largest allowable hole is greater than the
smallest shaft, but the smallest hole is smaller than the largest shaft, such that a
small positive or negative clearance exists between the shaft and hole.
 In the symbolic units equation for Newton’s second
law, F=ma. Units chosen for any three of these
quantities are called base units.

 The International System of Units (SI) is an absolute

system. The base units are the meter, the kilogram (for
mass), and the second.
Significant Figures
 The number of significant figures is usually inferred by
the number of figures given (except for leading zeros).
For example, 706, 3.14, and 0.00219 are assumed to be
numbers with three significant figures.

 Computers and calculators display calculations to many

significant figures. However, you should never report a
number of significant figures of a calculation any greater
than the smallest number of significant figures of the
numbers used for the calculation.

 For example, determine the circumference of a solid

shaft with a diameter of d=11mm. The circumference is
given by C=πd. Since d is given with two significant
figures, C should be reported with only two significant
