Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Next students knowledge enhancement especially in sphere of transmissions. Variant and comparative evaluation and a design of a drive type.

Teaching methods



Learning outcomes of the course unit The aim of the course is to summarize and extend the knowledge of subjects ČaMS I and ČaMS II. Whole the spectrum of basic machine parts will be applied to the example of the design of the drive of a machine or a mechanism. It will focus on the design of the electric motor or internal combustion engine, optimize the transmission by means of HCR gearing and complement it with other drive elements, especially clutches, bearings and seals. The result will be a semestral project of complex drive.
