Course Description

You learn about the machine element which is the minimum unit which constitutes a machine.
The complicated machine has also combined the simple machine element in many cases.
Many of the machine elements are standardized and, in a design, the knowledge is needed.
I am required for a machine design, and about a typical machine element, I work and study structure, a standard, etc.
I learn the knowledge and skill about DP4 and DP5 in this lesson.

Course Objectives

In order to design a machine, the knowledge about a machine element is required.
In a machine design, structure, a standard, graphics, etc. besides an outline are shown about an important machine element, and I consider it as the foundation of a machine design.

Grading Policy

Perform a lecture and an exercise based on a textbook and ask for presentation by considering an exercise problem as a report at any time.
About the subject which asked for presentation during session, I certainly answer, and include the answers in the results.
The results of a term-end examination are mainly estimate.
They are 90% of a periodic exam, and 10% of a subject in a lesson.
I do a re-examination on the unsuccessful applicant(s) of a periodic exam in principle.
