Course Description

This course is to understand mechanical engineering through experiments as follows:

Numerical experiment: Basic Analysis based on Finite Element Method
Experiment 1: Tensile Test for Metallic Materials
Experiment 2: Drag Measurement of Obstacles in Flow
Experiment 3: Test for Accuracy of Lathes
Experiment 4: Modeling and Experiment of Mechanical Phenomenon

Students will learn knowledge, technique, and manner for DP2, DP3, DP4, and DP5.

Course Objectives

Students will perform experiments of material mechanics, fluid dynamics, thermal dynamics, mechanical dynamics, and machine element. Through experiments, students will deepen their understanding of theories learned in lectures. Moreover, students will learn safe manners, experiment methods, and use of experimental equipment and measuring instruments. In addition, students will learn the analysis of experimental data, graph making, and experimental consideration.

Grading Policy

Grading is determined with reports of each experiment. If the report is inadequate, it must be resubmitted. We will explain points that should be revised.

Textbook and Reference

TextbookJapanese textbook: 機械・精密システム工学実験(産図テクスト)


Students must review strength of material, fluid dynamics, thermal dynamics, mechanical dynamics, machine element, physics, and mathematics. In addition, students must study a textbook and handouts (1.5 hours).
