Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

During the course, students will acquire these basic skills - advanced knowledge of design work on a PC (Inventor, AutoCad); good technical thinking and creativity; mutual communication skills (the need for mutual cooperation for the final implementation of a structural unit consisting of partial design tasks) and organizational skills (the need to work with websites and search for offered 3D models from manufacturers or suppliers). Students will master the transferable and applicable requirements needed for quality design work: active approach, creative thinking, effective communication, cooperation, creativity and cooperation, flexibility, performance, independence, problem-solving ability, planning and organizing work, leadership and teamwork, workload management, discovery and orientation in information, lifelong learning). The aim of the course is the overall completion of knowledge of previous design exercises from transport facilities with the aim of deepening knowledge and enriching teaching with examples of creative methods. A system of respecting the necessary regulations and standards in the field of safety is a prerequisite for meeting the requirements for transport equipment. Determining risks with respect to ergonomic and safety aspects is a matter of course in the field of transport equipment for the transport of people and goods. Processing is expected on a PC with possible simulation of ongoing processes.

Individual consultations
Project work


The course Design Exercises from Process Equipment is focused on the construction of transport machines, lifting and process equipment. An integral part are the strength calculations needed to check the construction and design proposals, including optimization calculations of transport capacity, batch size, substance quantities. Based on the assigned topic, each student independently performs the design and necessary technological and strength calculations, which are further used for the design of parts or units of transport machines, handling equipment or lifting equipment. Graduates of the course solve technological and strength calculations necessary for the final processing of construction and design proposals. Processing of the design solution is assumed in a 3D modeler on a PC. Students submit the final solution electronically in 2D in DWG format.
